Let's go ride a bike
When was the last time you rode a bike?
We are at the shore, so we use a bike for everything from exercise to daily transportation to pleasure.
Our morning exercise routine is to ride a few miles on the boardwalk first thing in the morning, enjoying the sun as it rises above the ocean.
We ride our bikes to the beach because parking is next to impossible in a 5-block radius of the ocean, and it's a lot quicker than walking!
And our evenings are often spent pedaling up and down the neighboring streets, looking at homes and imagining the lives of those who live in them.
Interestingly enough, when summer ends, so do our bike rides. We pack them away with our beach chairs and sand toys, never to be used again until next summer.
Been on a bike ride lately? Enjoy!
(Today's August Break assignment was circles, which immediately brought to my mind these bike wheels!)
