Back in the Saddle

Last Friday I brought Eselin home again. The good people at Natural Cycle could not find anything mechanically wrong with her, so I guess what I feel is just a quirk.

On Tuesday I went to the Western Canada Aviation Museum to see one of the last two flying Lancaster bombers.

I had considered cycling there, as it is only about 11 kilometers from home. I am however, glad I didn't.
The lack of bicycle parking could have been managed, but there were so many drivers who were not paying attention that I had to do some fancy footwork on my six block walk to avoid being hit. I would not have managed such nimbleness on my bike.

I did however learn a great deal and my respect for war veterans only continues to increase.
