when the weather turns beautiful, riding your bike is one of the more pleasing & quiet things you can enjoy. on nice days, hikes to the pond (an attempt to make contact with the resident otter), treks on the beach & riding a bike can be, as good as it gets. go out & enjoy the sun if it's shining on you. my surly, a burnt brown, is a bit older but still likes to go. a friend of mine who loved bikes had a mantra, "ride fast, live slow".
