Today is maybe the ONLY day I can commute this week (have a Dr. Appointment tomorrow and Monday/Tues was my regular "bad" day. this week I drove..BAH!) though I MAY do it Friday as well.
Anyway! this morning was WONDERFUL! I had a quick errand then off to work. My trip has a couple of good hills, which are overcome with the assistance of teh Currie drive. And part fo the ride is through a local county park. Saw Deer, a Beaver, and other animals along the way. Air was Iowa WONDERFUL (typical spring!) about 40 degrees.
After work, I had still another errand, was planning to pick up a pop up canopy for my business but that will have to wait until Friday now. (why do you think I have a couple of LONG loaders!!) riding through the small town in which I work, I heard a kid on a porch say to a friend, "WowTHAT is a cool bike!" as I rolled past on a brick street (they sound so cool on a fat tire bike!)
there was nothing particularly superior or unusual about today, just a simple ride that worked. I carried my thermos with Hot Tea in it (Oolong today!) and my Tea mug and my bottle of water. On the way home the radicals also held my denim jacket.
I enjoy riding so much that I will make ANY excuse to extend the ridde!
