One of the things that I think is funny about my father is the network of friends and acquaintances he has. When he goes to a Lady Bears Game, he likes to get there at least an hour early and make the circle of his buddies scattered around the arena.
That’s kind of the way I felt last night as I was riding home. I kept running into people I know. I encountered Jim at National and Cherry and rode with him quite a bit of the way home. It took a couple of tries before I managed to snag him in an over the shoulder photo. I think he helped by riding into the sweet spot for me! Ignore the ugliness in the foreground!
Then, as I was huffing up the hill at Dan Kinney Park, I spotted Carter.
I actually saw a couple other bike commuters yesterday and this morning as well. I think it’s getting that time of the year where more are getting on the road, but these two are year-round riders.
Today is “save the legs” day in anticipation of some punishment tomorrow. More on that when it’s over, but it sure was hard riding at a recovery ride pace today when the weather was really nice and we didn’t have the wind that’s been punishing us so often lately.
