Getting ready to leave. Fortunate living only a couple miles from Tranquility.
Last Sunday, family was out and about and both vehicles were gone. Being it was a great day, sunny with temps in the 50's, I had an itch to do some trailwork. With mary down waiting for a seatpost, I broke out the first bike I ever bought - an 02 Giant Sedona - a comfort bike. I hadn't ridden this in a couple years. After pumping up the tires, checked the slop in the hub bearings, checked a few bolts, loaded up and went for it. Kept the chain in the middle of the cassette and occassionally changed between middle and big ring. Old rim brakes pulling a bob didn't inspire much confidence. I missed fix braking with the legs. Coupled with Ginger on a retractable lead, this kept me on my toes when braking for intersections and passing other dogs. After some successful treadwork and talking with a few people, pulled onto the last block just as it started to rain. - Great timing! Tired, dirty, and hungry - the sign of a good time with a bike!
