Happy June, everybody! Look around — it’s time to think about your “Happy Thursday”-ing and your floodplain. We’ve put together two new resource pages for you — remember those? they’re all down the left side of this page and we take requests!
And, in happier news, we’re excited about riding our bikes all the time these days and have recently had a few questions about Boulder cruiser rides, so we put together some information on those, too (though we emphasize that you can always organize your own group rides)!
I don’t know about you guys, but the mosquitoes are trickling back into my neck of the woods. We’re thinking about making our own bug repellent, so I thought I’d share a find with you.
Here is an easy repellent to make that has a shelf life of around six months. Label jars “mosquito,” “tick,” etc. for quick identification.
1o to 25 drops essential oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (olive oil is fine)
1 tablespoon aloe vera gel (optional)
Combine the ingredients in a glass jar. Shake to blend. Dab a few drops on your skin or clothing.
