As summer break was drawing to a close, Bob asked me to go on a “rocket ride” with him. When your husband of almost 38 years asked you on a date, the appropriate answer is “YES!”.
Part of our retirement planning the past several years has been to purchase several good bicycles. I say several, since they are used for different purposes: on-road, off-road, and then I have one just for errands and groceries (I call it my “town-bike”).
I’m somewhat disappointed to admit that the muscles and joints are not quite what they used to be, readily complaining, and preferring my great-grandmother’s rocking chair to the hard saddle of my Specialized Allez. Of course, padded spandex comes in handy. Bob says there are two fashion rules for wearing spandex:
You have to have the right body type, and,
Nobody has the right body type.
