Today I dusted off my trusty bicycle, got her tuned up, seat and handlebar grips replaced, put the kickstand back on, attached a new water bottle holder. I took her for a test run tonight to go find my darling daughter and her fellow teenage tricker-or-treaters, swung by on my bike long enough to say "hello" and "happy halloween" a couple of times, enough to embarrass them and make sure they weren't up to too much mischief. The bike felt great. My thighs are saying, "Whoah, hey, wait a minute. It's been a while since we did that." Don't worry, thighs, you'll be back in shape in no time. Oh, the places we'll go.
