Yarn-bombed bicycle for Fourth of July

An ankle injury sidelined me from riding during’s Go By Bike Week in May, but I was able to resume riding in time to participate in the Fourth of July parade.

The Web-sters yarn shop in Ashland, Oregon provided swatches and yarn for crafters to decorate their bikes. A bicycle yarn-bombing party took place Tuesday at Lithia Park in downtown Ashland.

Interestingly, I rely on my bicycle as much for mobility as enjoyment while I recover from my injury. It is much easier to get around by bicycle than to walk assisted with a cane, and places less stress on my foot.
