I loaded the Cycle Trucks Beavertail with my workbag, puppies, and home made snacks and drinks. We enjoyed the urban outdoors by the beach while I get thru some online training.

Tuesday evenings is a night out for me. Usually, I join an Urban Bike & Social club to catch up with friends for Taco Tuesday. This week I took my pups and the Big Dummy on a slow exploration ride from Balboa Park,Quartyard, East Village, Petco Park, SD Harbor, Seaport Village, SD Waterfront Park, Little Italy, then back to Balboa Park. All these places are walkable and bikable. I estimate that everything is within a 2 mile radius. I rode slow enough to enjoy and experience the urban landscape. I stopped often and walked to further check out a store, playground, etc. It was really about slowing the pace of the evening.
Plaza de Panama in Balboa Park used to be a parking lot for cars until a few years ago. Now it is for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy. Select museums are free on Tuesdays if you are a resident in San Diego.

I had a Burritto from a Taco Truck and got a drink from Messhuggah Shack at The Quartyard in East Village. I stayed there for two hours. I played chess, talked to other dog owners at the small dog park, played giant Jenga, tossed bean bags, listened to the surround sound music that masked downtown traffic.
