Gerry has been riding his bike to work lately and it’s inspired me to get back onto mine. My bike is a 1930’s cruiser bike from Value Village and I haven’t been on it ALL YEAR. What a shame…
The problem is that we have to store it in the basement of the condo (no room upstairs) and it hangs on a bike-hook that’s difficult for me to manage on my own because the bike is so heavy but the weather is so beautiful right now and it’s perfect bike riding weather … so I’ve managed to get on my bike 3 times this week and my ass is happy for the exercise.
Yesterday we rode through our former neighborhood in Oak Bay (we’ve lived in 8 places in 15 years together) and down to the Chinese Cemetery to let Fergus run around on the beach.
The weather yesterday was PERFECT! Warm sun with a cool ocean breeze made riding around on bikes so much fun … look at that view!
Then we headed to Cook Street Village for Ethiopian Food (not as good as Ethiopian House in Toronto) and to rest our legs.
On the ride home I snapped a photo of my favourite tree … Every year the city perfectly grooms the trees but this ONE tree on my street they always under-cut and by the end of the season it is out of control in such an awesome way. It makes me laugh every time I walk by it.
What’s on the agenda for today? Well … it’s Monday … so … that means BURRITOS! 🙂
