My Tahoe is dead. At least for now, and it was perfect timing. I had just taken my mountain bike to our local outfitter, Sunrift, where it had a tune-up and complete overhaul. Since having my bike available once again, I have been riding to work. It is not a long haul, about a mile and a half or so, but it is uphill from my house to Look Up. It has caused me to slow down and notice a few things as I ride: cigarette butts, empty beer cans, broken beer bottles, McDonald’s bags, disfigured and bloated animals, construction material strewn about… just to name a few. I guess in slowing down, I have been made aware of how fast we are really moving.
I think I may ride my bike to work from now on.
