Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.
It was fun to watch the church being decorated with a door arch wreath of ferns, leaves, and tropical creepers. Then watching all the women guests in silk flounces, lots of lace overlays and trims, and stilettos or platform shoes. The men in business dress, everyone shaking hands, back slapping and giving a one cheek kiss.
