National Bicycle Month

That's me, on my bike yesterday. I grinned so much I'm surprised I wasn't picking bugs from my teeth!

May is National Bicycle Month!

I love riding my bike! I get such a rush from the sense of freedom. It's much more freeing than being in a car. To me, a car is like a metal box that keeps me trapped inside. On the bike, I'm outside and in nature! I can actually SEE the beauty because I'm not rushing. I often stop for a closer look.


I am very happy to live in a community where there is cool stuff to do downtown, but within a short biking distance, I'm out on the roads less traveled. Here are some of the things I saw while riding yesterday.

Dogwoods



Fields of yellow (I think it's mustard)



The creek is high



Sweet William



Wild Geranium



Larkspur
