Where is Patrick!?

Good thing the baby is cute.
Patrick is sick.  I thought he was not so sick, but he is pretty sick.  Sick enough, that they put him on some IV fluids and antibiotics.   Today is his last round of medicine at the hospital and I know he is feeling better because he decided to ride his bike there.  I do not really have much to say other than that.  I am pretty excited to go back to Spokane.  We leave at the end on June.  I am worried about what to do with our apartment while we are gone.  I am scared that is will turn into a roach hotel.  I keep everything very clean.  But these suckers are an unknown enemy to me.  I know how to deal with mice and such from my experiences in Spokane.  But, ROACHES!?  Argh.  That is all.

Day 20 or 21

Somehow, I'm a day off. Today's the 21st, but it's supposed to be Day 20. Oh well. Who cares. Today was a short errand to the bank and cell phone store for a new toy. Flatted for the 3rd time this week.

Not mine.

Forgot the key to my lock so used one of these bike parking things. When you slide the bike in a little claw-type thing clamps the front wheel in place. Costs a buck for 3 hours.

Day 19 night

Next destination.

I love stopping by small train stations at night. Empty and quiet.

Day 19 afternoon

Bike ride number 2 didn't happen but a walk to the park happened instead.

All is well when it ends in ice cream.

Day 19 Morning

7am ride. Didn't take pictures of all the people out on the river trails, but holy crap there were a ton! Most of them were runners and kids playing baseball. I think today is going to be a at least a 2 ride if not a 3 ride day hopefully involving the family.

There were golfers too.

I try to walk for a while on my rides. I tend to find some interesting stuff .

Don't be packing when you're a snacking at the Muscle Steak House.

Day 17

Another beautiful warm morning. It was fun but I realized how much I miss riding with someone other than myself. I'm not much of a people person, but I can use some riding company right about now. I've noticed that most of the non-commuting cyclists ride alone too.

Day 16

I'm beginning to write less and less words. Not really good at it. This writing thing. This usually signifies the end of road for blogging or in this case the end of this 30 days of riding my bike thing. 

But not so fast. Gonna hang in and finish this project. It's not because it's difficult. Of course not. I just never finish anything.

It was another beautiful morning. Warm and windy. The river road was clear - little traffic. Everything felt right.

Stopped by this Home Depot-ish store to get some safety glasses to use while riding.

Didn't buy these. Too small. The guy on the box doesn't seem happy with his either.

These look good.

I'm smiling with mine.
