We are fortunate to have weather that's suitable for bicycling - even for casual cyclists - probably 9 months of the year. But every year, I'm reminded of how lovely it is to ride a bike in autumn in Boise! The days are generally still warm and sunny... the trees do their magical transformation... and I s'pose the lighter traffic also contributes. (What's with the people who put their bikes away for the year, on Labor Day?!)
This year was particularly amazing - we didn't have frost until November! And so the perfect conditions have persisted a few weeks longer than normal.
Today I went on a bike ride with granddaughter Bonnie. Lovely scenery... plus encounters with lots of squirrels, geese and ducks... giraffes (! - looking over the fence at the zoo)... and Bambis grazing at the park. A fine time was had by all.
She'll have outgrown the baby seat by next season... better bust out the tag-a-long, I guess...
