On my early evening bike ride I managed to chug around the neighbourhood. I explored streets I had never been down, including quite a number of parks. My town is certainly very green. The weather was perfect, neither too hot nor too cold. I was glad for the chance to burn off some calories.
I shared the time with many people out walking their dogs. This included couples as well as one very attractive woman in green–who I admit I managed to circle past a few times. To do so, I had to repeatedly climb some hills. This was great for the cardio, leg muscles, and hopefully for the caloric burn. While it did not result in a date, or a restraining order, it did give rise to Today’s Perfect Moment.
Once the lung burn subsided, I got to go down those long inclines I climbed. On one of them, I found a fantastic piece of road. It was flat and smooth, and without stop signs for quite a long stretch. I blasted down them, wind blowing on my scalp, speed increasing without pedaling. The wheels made that clicking sound that is the bicycle version of the engine revving. This was such a great feeling. It was truly fantastic. It was perfect.
