Since January, Sara over at Life’s a Bear has been collecting photos of people on bicycles as part of her #everydayonabike challenge as a way to motivate her own efforts and to “encourage others to consider biking as and easy and fun and empowering way to get around.” Couldn’t have said it better!
I’ve been meaning to participate, and with yesterday afternoon’s beautiful bike outing at the park, I finally got around to taking a photo. The only catch? She’s collecting photos using Instagram.
I’ve never used Instagram, but I thought it would be a simple matter of going to the website and signing up for an account (like Twitter). Not so much — apparently, you to have one of them fancy IPhones or androids or tablets or whatever them kids are usin’ these days.
Regardless of the fact that our computer seemed to think it was a tablet, it doesn’t want to play with Instagram (I wasted much precious time figuring this out, of course). And my basic, no-frills, no-data-plan, talk and text only phone is definitely out.
So, without further ado, here is my attempt to participate in #everydayonabike.
Have you been out on your bike yet this month?
OK… so you inspired me.
Hope you don’t mind my using your picture… I just loved it so very much! If you do mind, just let me know and I’ll take it down.
