New hobby. Enough with the gloom and doom. Bought a Bike. The pedaling variety. Trek “hybrid” bike. Once upon a time there were girls bikes, boys bikes. Then came road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, electric bikes (cheating) and something called a step across  which has a girls bike bar but anyone can ride it. Just step across it and you’re on. Whewwww!!!

Of course we have apps to measure our rides. To compare. To brag about. To compile data. To do whatever one needs to do. Strava is the one I’m using. The free version. They continue to bug me to “subscribe” (upgrade i.e. pay). Not gonna do it. Just gonna ride my cycle around the subdivision. And try to match my level of riding that I had at age 30.  After 2 months I can tell you 67 is not the new 30. Reality has to be accepted. But. I do love riding the bike.

And nothing of any real consequence is being done to truly eradicate it.  What if this just continues to mutate Continue reading →
