Autumn is in full swing. The city has been highlighted in reds, oranges, and yellows. And despite the rain and wind, there are more leaves still on the trees than on the ground.
And yet, there are plenty of leaves on the ground, which makes me wonder: how many good cycling days have I left? A couple of years ago, the wheels of my bike slipped out from under me in the early morning, as I rode to work. Moisture, a little frost, and a leaf-coated pathway made for conditions that made me want to hang up my bike for the season. The huge bruise on my butt sealed the deal.
I'm crossing my fingers for a few more nice days. Here's to autumn, but no falls!
