I’ve probably said it enough, but I’ll mention once again that I’ve been doing a lot of gravel riding lately. That was my plan again today. I’ve been having so much fun on gravel that sometimes I feel like I’ll never ride my skinny-tired roadie bike again, though, deep down, I know I will because speed is pretty fun too.
I had no intention of making any kind of petroleum-based string-like product the feature of my Cycle-365 post. And I certainly had no intention of showing up Nancy’s plastic twine “Potentially Useful Ejecti” find from yesterday. Things just happen sometimes when one is out on a bike ride.
Eventually I ran out of gravel and had to get on busy Highway 55 back to MY Town. That’s where I noticed the never-ending blue and white plastic-y twine. It had been at my side for at least a mile before I finally decided to stop and take a picture of it.
I didn’t know where the string began, but I sort of wanted to ride back to find out. I didn’t do that, but I was absolutely determined to find at least one end of the string. I didn’t care how far I had to ride to find it. About a half-mile later I felt like I was getting close.
Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.
