Spring To-Do List Update #1 - Bikes & Smoothies

A few weeks ago I posted my Spring to Do List -- a list of 20 things I want to accomplish between the first day of Spring and the First Day of Summer! (Click here to see my list!)

I am happy to report that last weekend I checked two items off of my list: 

5. Ride bikes on the River Walk.   

16. Try the fresh juices at Farm to Juice or Juice Central!

We rode bikes on the Riverwalk last year when Kir came to visit and we had so much fun! This time, instead of just a day pass, we decided to purchase the annual pass for B-Cycle San Antonio! Bike kiosks are located all over the city and now, with just the swipe of a card, we can rent a bike for up to an hour at a time and cruise around whenever we want for the next year!

We rode for hours last Sunday afternoon (you just have to re-dock your bike within an hour at a kiosk and then you can check it right back out again) and logged about 18 miles. The weather was heavenly - sunny, with a slight breeze, and the smell of blue bonnets in the air. 

We rode from down town to Mission Espada and back. To see our route, click here!

Hubby and I also tried the Juice Central in Alamo Heights. I found the store to be very aesthetically pleasing, decorated in hues of grass green, white, and earthy brown. It also smelled delicious - like fresh citrus fruit and wheat grass!

I ordered the Super C Blast, but was given the Anti-Oxidant Power. I should have told the staff that they got my order wrong, but since I had never been to Juice Central before I decided to try what they made me. The Anti-Oxidant Power, made with apple juice, acai berry, strawberry, blueberry, and goji berries, is delicious. I even felt healthier after drinking this smoothie!

I prefer citrus over berries, so if I go back I will order (and make sure I am given) the Super C Blast, which is chalk full of grapefruit, pineapple, strawberries, orange juice.

Hope your Spring is in full swing! What have you been up to? Chime in with a comment below!



  1. Meg, So sorry you got the wrong drink! We would have happily made you what you had asked for if you had let us know our mistake. Hope you stop by again and give us another try- you'll love the Super C!

    1. Oh no worries! What I had was amazing! I will be definitely back for more! Love the Alamo Heights location and can't wait to try down town!

  2. What a fun day, looks beautiful!!

    1. The best weather we have had in a while! Happy Spring!

  3. Omg, I was in DC this weekend and bought a day pass to their bike share. It was a little stressful riding in the city but so much fun!
