My Life on Bikes

Doing some errands on my bike

The sound of electricity over my head. Riding back home after running some errands I jumped on a bike path under high power lines. You can hear then crackle over your head. There are also warnings that you may be attacked by black birds so no stopping. No doubt the birds have mutated due to the electrical radiation.

Did about 10 miles running errands and just cruising around. Saw some yard sales, bought some lemon-aid from a little kid’s stand, picked up some stuff at the drug store, and stopped by the fire vs police BBQ cook off at Whole Foods for a free burger. Only the firemen were cooking, not sure what happened to the cops I may or may not post the ride details here. There really wasn’t much to it and I rode slow on purpose just to enjoy the day. It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve been out on a bike and I wanted to savor it.

Tomorrow is the Swedish Days ride but, there are thunderstorms in the forecast. I’m packed and ready to go in the morning. Going to keep my fingers crossed it doesn’t rain too hard. I like a little rain. I actually love riding in the rain as long as it’s not coming down too hard.

UPDATE: Downloaded the gps information and it was CRAZY. Looks like the power lines interfered with the satellite tracking.
