first ride

we hit the mid 70s yesterday so it was my first ride to work for the season.i always look forward to the time when i can start riding my bike for errands and work. the switch to daylight savings time earlier than normal means that it is still light even now when i get off work (in years past a deterent to riding)so i can get home safely. yippee!!
and while i hate to waste a second first in the same post i will mention that it was also the first time i've locked my bike in the 5 years we've been here.

Any reason you started locking the bike other than the fact you have a cool bike lock?

i pulled Aidan's bike out of the rafters yesterday- usually James job but Aidan informed me I should take a deep breath, and stop and think and then i will be able to do it. and he was right. we only got stuck in the garage door opener twice. Speaking of locking bikes- i recently had an unpleasant experience of being politely robbed in the gym parking lot. the same day i found out someone had breached my ebay account- so i really trust no one anymore-so you better lock the bock.
