Like Riding A Bicycle

It was lovely weather this evening and we decided to go for a bicycle ride around the lake after dinner. It has been maybe five years since I have ridden a bike. They say once you learn, you never forget. It's true. I still know how to get around on a bike. I have not forgotten.

Nor have I forgotten what it is like to walk home with a flat tire. I made it all the way to the boat landing, about 0.75 miles up the road, when my tire went flat. I walked the same 0.75 miles back home with my bike at my side.

But my father taught me well. Tomorrow afternoon, when I come home from work, I will prove I have not forgotten how to fix a flat tire.

As soon as I find my bicycle repair kit, that is. Because I may have forgotten where I put that.


  1. Nothing compares to the feeling of riding a bike. I can't wait to get mine out this weekend!

  2. Is that my Trek? Surely not! Actually that bike HAS had several flat tires. I don't know what is the deal with that. I've had it to Mel's in Rhinelander twice, but it still keeps happening. Sorry!
