Most of my rides are not blog worthy. Went to the library. Took Little Girl to the park. Went to the Farmer’s Market. No Big Deal.
This time was different for so many reasons.
Little Girl was in her trailer, I was on Mrs. Brown. We met a nice lady on an adult trike coming down the bridge and had a short visit about her trike. She wasn’t aware that she could get it re-geared to have an easier time on our many bridges.
Some random person told me how much he liked my bike and that he hadn’t seen that brand for sale in town before, and would I sell it for $500? I just laughed. He went to $700. Nope! I have bike contentment. It was a lot of work to get here, I’m not keen to start all over.
I biked home with 20lbs of fresh peaches and all my other produce.
When I was stopped at the bottom of the bridge to take this picture, some one stopped me and talked me into selling her two of them. It is likely just as well. Between all the fruit, my “All Steel” bicycle, the baby trailer, my purse, Little girl, and two sets of D locks, I don’t know how much weight I was pedaling up the bridge, but I was breathing pretty heavy in the hot sun while doing it.
None the less, I have a huge sense of accomplishment that I made it all the way there and back with a full load of heavy groceries. My legs did not hurt the next day. My bike did not creak while I was doing it. Life is good.
