I rode my bike last weekend for the first time in five years. I literally had to dust it off. The nice thing about low tech things is they’re reliable. Just some air in the tires and the bike was ready to go. Sure, one of the shifters is a little wonky, but mostly the bike rides well.
When I got home on Saturday morning, Alex saw me wearing my bike helmet and insisted on wearing one while he rode his tricycle in the back yard. Because my helmet was sweaty from the ride, we let him wear Molly’s. He wore the helmet the rest of the morning. And note the ubiquitous red dinosaur pajamas.
