High On Bike

A Bellinghamster On Wheels

All The Way Home


Today was a perfect day for a ride. Indian summer is here with warm days that aren’t too warm, cool breezes, and chilly nights. The leaves are just starting to turn and the light is different…cozier. I rode about 10 miles and was giddy for most of them.
It’s just this sort of ride that inspired my husband to design a big button to put on the back of my trunk bag. Take a look.

In essence that’s me—a happy little piggy. Don’t worry, the piggy thing isn’t derogatory. I am a self-described snork, sometimes to my own detriment, (take a look at my new blog, “Taming the Young Wildebeest”). My ringtone on Ira’s phone is the “Wee, Wee, Weeeeeee” of Maxwell the Geico piggy. Basically, Ira and I think pigs are cute. And I love my big button

I ride because it's fun. It's also healthy, good for the environment, and my gas budget but if it wasn’t fun, none of that would matter. It's what gets me on my bike almost every day, even when I'm tired, not feeling my best, or just not in the mood. No other form of "exercise" has equaled it. I used to love to run but I was injury-prone and couldn't do it every day. I certainly couldn't jog down to the store and come home with dinner. Walking is okay but definitely falls around midpoint on the fun scale. I enjoy it, especially when I'm walking with a friend, but am not exhilarated by it. So I ride.
