Happy Leap Day + Leap Day Ride

Cyclist Celebrating Leap Day*

Leap Day isn’t a Holiday, I’m fairly certain it isn’t, but it is an extra day of note

I see no banners or decorations or other accoutrements celebrating it

An extra day in February — who would even want to celebrate that!

(Well, maybe a Leapling would)

At any rate, we can thank Pope Gregory for its ‘celebration’ every 4 years

(that Pope is the other Pope Gregory, the lesser known one 😉  )

For anyone suffering insomnia I offer the following link:

History of Leap Year

If anyone is REALLY having trouble falling asleep, try THIS

*Disclaimer:   That is not me jumping at Mt Landfill

Just thinking (yes it hurts) — Bill’s doppelgangers leaping over a boulder would be cool  — or a sequence of Pope Gregory’s headstands, or, who knows. . . . . . .  Maybe this is a Leap Day Challenge??

Leap Day ride — via Casey’s and then down 7th street, west to 1500E and return home

All of 5 miles, but an OK ride

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Happy Leap Day to you, too!
    I sometimes do have problems falling asleep, but your links were too interesting, no help to be expected there!

    Happy __L ….Day to you too. I was really hoping to get in a special Leap Day ride tomorrow, but weather coming in may have me pulling in the reins on my expectations. If I can get out early, I may miss the bulk of the wet weather. Fingers crossed! I’ve long wanted to join the ranks of people doing something they love on Leap Day.

    I didn’t think of Leap Day as a holiday, but I did ride. I didn’t take any photos though. I did 25 kms into town and back to pick up my veggie box from the organic farmer guy. It’s pretty cool to think those organic veggies had such a little carbon footprint. No pesticides, water from the river nearby, picked that morning, packed in my panniers and then ridden home by pedal power. And I didn’t even get a leap year shot 🙁
