Pining for my Bicycle

For the last two days I've had to take advantage of our newly repaired car to run some errands that I just can't do by bicycle. Mainly hauling summer gear from the barn and bringing in winter gear. Also, taking one ginger feline to visit her favorite vet. This means that I haven't been able to ride my usual 10 miles to the barn and back. Though the car is handy for hauling things, and transporting irate felines, I've come to the conclusion that I HATE driving. It makes my back hurt. It makes me grumpy. I've missed the cold night air, the adrenaline, feeling the blood pump through my veins, the sounds and smells of the night. Cars take the magic away.


  1. Oh no : (
    Wishing the Feline a speedy recovery!

  2. What, you mean your cat doesn't like to ride the bike with you?! ;)

    I feel much grumpier when I drive a lot also. Sometimes I think I'd be much happier if I could simply walk everywhere though since biking everywhere in my area isn't the easiest and public transit has it's drawbacks. If I didn't have to deal with rude people while riding the bike I'd much prefer that, but at least as a pedestrian I don't get honked at incessantly for no reason (usually)!
