Riding in the Dark

ORN 8/21/05 60 minutes, city bike

Not to put too fine a point on the bicycling part, but there is a 3rd bike in the stable. This is my "daily" bike. It's what they used to call a cross-over, I think. Skinny tires but flat handlebars. It's what I use to get around most days. It's got lights, but no fenders [although, I'm thinking about fenders!!]

The only time I had to get out was in the evening, at about 7:30 PM. The weather was perfect, and it felt great to just get in an after-dinner ride. By the time I was headed home it was pretty dark, so the lights came in handy.

It was a nice change of pace. Riding in the dark is another childhood throwback.

Waddle on, friends.
