Well, I wasn't going to ask for a ride, but if you're offering...
My Mom called me at work to ask if I wanted a ride home. I was going to figure something else out, 'cause I felt sheepish being van-less for a third Sunday. But she claimed not to mind, so I was happy to accept the offer.
I stayed after work to finish work on my KHS Professional road bicycle. It's a single speed with three cog choices and a bunch of spacers on an Ultegra hub. It's not too shabby. It rolls like mercury down a windowpane, and white handlebar tape is all the else I have to say.
I rode swiftly into a strong headwind to arrive at the rendezvous.
