I still ride my bike, but due to the time constraints imposed by softball/baseball season, I’ve only been riding to the Eye on Sundays. Oh, and last week to the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District meeting. The evening was lovely, windless and cool; the meeting’s so close to home. I just couldn’t stand the idea of getting back in the car.

Once the pressure of picking the kids up in Arcata from Ferndale to get them to Eureka eases, I hope to ride at least twice a week. Maybe MD will finally commit to carpooling with me on Mondays and Fridays, too. This drivedrivedrive lifestyle is a drag.
