Bicycle Ride

The woods are too slushy with melting snow to venture into, so I decided to take a little spin on the bicycle and see what the local farms might offer for photos. This is the first time I’ve had the bike out since fall, and it feels great!

The first barnyard animal I happen upon is this googly eyed goat. He looks like a giant hairball with handlebar horns and Rodney Dangerfield eyes. He’s the Devil, I’m sure.

Further up the road, I was sure surprised to find a herd of buffalo. I’ve driven past here before, but I assumed those were cattle out in the field, and never took a closer look.

Finally, I found four flags fleeing across a farmer’s field. (Brought to you by the letter F)

Einstein Quote


My new ride. Harry Potter had his Nimbus 2000. This is my Stimulus 2020.

There are so many nice, winding bicycle trails linking the small towns of the Iron Range now. Paved and groomed, they’re great for the “mature” bicyclist such as myself.

Like walking or jogging, there’s something about doing it that helps you jostle things into place in your head, and keeps the body balanced–which brings me to the quote by Albert Einstein:

“Life is like riding a bike.

To keep balanced,

you must keep moving.”
