I had to make sure my bike was in great condition
I have gotten rid of my vehicle. There really was no need to have one in my city of Portland Oregon. I live centrally in the city and can walk or bike anywhere I want to. What is nice is that most businesses have gotten really good about delivery services. I can get my groceries delivered in bulk to my house. Produce, fresh cheese, meat and dairy all can be sent in the order. If I spend a certain amount, the delivery services are free. Most of the time I make the bike ride to the store and then just carry what I can in my bike basket. I can do online deposits for the bank and get my pharmacy products sent to my doorstep. The last thing that was holding out was my legal weed shop. The Oregon cannabis dispensary didn’t offer delivery for the longest time. It was the only errand that was sort of a pain for me. The bike ride was a long one and uphill. I had to be really determined if I wanted access to my cannabis products. Then I would be dead tired by the time I got home. I had to navigate around traffic and weather too. I had to make sure my bike was in great condition. Now that the dispensary offers delivery, there is no more worry. I never make that trip on my bike anymore. It is just too far and it is worth the 5 dollar charge to get my things sent to my doorstep.
