A mixed month: days of sun and rain, you never knew what was coming, rides from home, rides while touring, some days feeling good, some sick days. I had hoped for a more summer-like July. HERE are the pictures on my website.
At the moment I don’t have a bike. The day before yesterday when I tried to open the garage door, the type that swings up, it wouldn’t budge. I turned the key this way and that but to no avail. The next morning I called the superintendent of the building and he came immediately, but couldn’t fix it. He said we were lucky that the car was outside and not locked away. I didn’t bother to explain, but the real problem is that our bikes are locked away, we seldom need the car. The locksmith was then called, but didn’t make it yesterday. Today I am still waiting to get access to my bike.
But I have a food picture from several days ago. I rode my bike to go shopping, that’s the closest connection I can make to cycling. Sometimes I don’t bother to put on my reading glasses when shopping as was the case this time. I just grabbed this piece of cheese because it had an Italian sounding name and said chipotle on the label, that much I could read without the glasses. If possible I buy products that don’t involve a long transport distance. At home I saw that the Bellavitano Sartori cheese with chipotles was imported from Wisconsin! I was really amazed that our local Edeka market had cheese from the USA. It tasted pretty good.
