On a brighter, vitamin D filled note,
spring has absolutely sprung in Boulder. My herbs have grown significantly in the abundance of sunlight and I planted some tomatoes and thyme today. We put up the slack line today (which I am no better at than I was last year, but still working hard to get across) and practiced with the company of Bob Marley and some MI brews. I did not realise that I even had winter blues until how much better I felt in the warm sunshine today.
edit: why the heck did I write ‘today’ so many times??
Dear Automobile Traffic,
Please use consideration when pulling out of a driveway not to block a bike lane, slamming on bicycle brakes is considerably less effective than a vehicle. Also, when turning, please kindly look over your shoulder to not plow over a bicycler. It is written in drivers education to treat a bike as a motor vehicle which you would not merge lanes without checking so as to not hit another car, right? I will in exchange always use appropriate hang signals and stop at lights while wearing my helmet.
Your roadside neighbor, biking home.
