Today I went for a bike ride. This trip was a rare excursion without the kids. Pulling Lucy in the trailer creates just a bit of extra weight and Zach is too big for it. He rides his own bike now, something he is not incredibly good at. There is a tendency in him to hit the brakes every few feet and to turn despite a lack of need. Even with training wheels he falls.
No, today it was the open trail and me. I managed to go about 9 miles in forty minutes which seems okay. Stop signs littered the path through town causing a wait for a good straightaway. I gave it a good show when that happened. It was under tree cover and fast and I enjoyed it.
I’d like to give a shout-out to the other fat guys on that trail. One man was running, fitting his earbuds in, ready to get it down. Another was a large man on a tiny bicycle. Fitness was starting up around there.
I’m posting a shortie today! I’ve got other musings to… muse…
