Today Laura, Amelia and I took the bikes out like we always do. Rain or shine, we ride bikes. If it rains, we get wet. If it's cold, we wear coats. We ride bikes.
Of course, the weather was incredible today so everyone and their dog were out riding their bikes too. I realized today, that maybe everyone doesn't need to ride a bike. People riding without shirts, helmets hanging from the handlebars, walking their bikes with headphones, going the wrong way, riding too fast, riding too slow. I realize not everyone is a day in and day out cyclist like the rest of us. Hey, you drive a car. Glad to see you out of it, one less car etc etc etc. But people act like they once they're on a bike, they still have the "I own the road and will be damned if I'm gonna move over/slow down/give the right of way to you" mentality they have in their SUVs.
All I'm asking for is a little courtesy.
The three of us went to our favorite vegan bakery, Sweetpea Baking Company (yes, they do weddings),and had a couple of cookies. The tattooed young hipsters that work in these places enjoy keeping you on your toes musically speaking. We went from some obscure grindcore punk to some 2+ year old mainstream dance tracks which now constitutes as ironic, I guess. At this point, Amelia did what she always does when she hears a beat.
That is trouble, I tell ya, trouble. Right here in River City.
