I Cursed Myself for Not Being on My Bike!

Last week was just one of those weeks!  Little time to blog; more dental trauma; rain at inconvenient times; too much time in the car.  I had a doctor's visit and had to take the care due to time constraints with work.  Or so I thought!  For it my trip coincided with a mid-day traffic jam and a lengthy wait for a train crossing!  Ugh!  I glanced in my rear view mirror and saw . . . .

this young lady on a bike looking super cool and unconcerned.

Soon she was ahead of me at the light!

Shortly followed by this likewise carefree woman, probably between summer session classes.

I glanced out the passenger window at the traffic awaiting me after the light.  Oh, merde! Je veux mon velo!

Definitely been there! :o) Sometimes (more often than not) it's just painful to be in a car. Hope you're back on your bike soon.

Thanks, GE! Happily, I was back on my bike this very day. A very short ride to work but it felt good after a too long weekend nursing a toothache.

Ironic using your car because you are in a rush, and the bicyclistst traveling faster. It reminds me of the carmageddon "race" this past week in Los Angelos,
