Sometimes it’s the little things that catch your eye while riding – a flower growing out of the asphalt, a caterpillar crossing the road, a toy that was dropped out of a car. This evening it was just weeds along the road – backlit by the sinking sun, illuminated, glowing.
I had wanted to get out for a road ride today, but rain (and pile of laundry) kept me housebound until later in the day. We had really needed the rain, though – and I definitely needed to attack Col du DirtyLaundry. Eventually the skies cleared and I got out on the Xtracycle for a spin on the back roads. Just looking at the little things.
