Red Rooster Restaurant in Long Lake would not give me an adult to-go cup full of icy cold water. Against some state liquor regs, or something like that. I did find a Kiddee-cup and the staff filled that w/agua and the rig fit just fine in the handlebar cup holder on the Giant Cypress.
Picked up a pair red rear flasher lights at Gear West the other evening. Now I am visible as possible to following traffic. Fluorescent vest from same bike shop and I feel pretty confident when I'm wearing it. As for the stylin' bag hanging off the rear rack: it's from the UK, handmade of waxed cotton, easily carries a quart of milk, loaf of bread and two navel oranges home from the market.
Delicious Cold Press now on tap at Harvest Moon Co-Op. Kombucha available as well. Kombu seems sweet, Tiny C. Press is smooth, no bitter after taste, no gut-burn afterward.
I don't fall off the bike much, but I did take a tumble the other day. On my way to Panera, on a road under construction, all pavement dug up and removed, sand and gravel kinda graded smooth, plus a big orange sign that said No Thru Traffic. My front wheel ended up in much deeper sand than I imagined. Came to abrupt stop. Lost my balance, and went down on the road surface landing on my right leg. Of course I continued to my coffee destination, accepted the concerned comments from the baristas, stayed long enough to take a foto, then mounted back up and headed home to warm water, hydrogen peroxide, Neosporin and plenty of Band-aids. Boo-boo all better now, thanks for asking.
