I don't ride my X as much as I would like to, but am attempting to
change that! My family thinks I'm pretty goofy, but I ride it around
our farm. I like to walk or run, but riding around to do chores in

Last week I rode to our local school board meeting. Of the 20-30
people at the meeting two of us arrived on bikes, and a couple of
folks had carpooled. The other cyclist is a school board member.
His helmet is frequently a fixture on the school board table at the
meetings. It's great! I had to leave early and so did another
person; she was intrigued with my X, and I had fun explaining it to her.
As I ride more and walk less, it occurs to me that riding is so much

get on a bicycle! Humans complain about pain, but we don't always
relish the lack of pain or discomfort. I suppose that comes with age
and experience, as in "you don't know what you've got till it's
