    No more bicycle commuting for my wife(a case of the mondays)

    She retired last week. We still go riding every morning, it's just not to work now
    Couple snaps from this am.

    The capitol building area







    Then we stopped by the heated bench to warm up before continuing downtown for a warm drink and watching the sun come up.

    Thanks Tude It is actually heated. Some kind of vent, it blows hot air up through the slats. It was 27 degrees this am and within minutes we had to take our coats off. Pretty cool

    AZ- well not really retired, just taking an indefinite break. There are many mountains to snowboard this year..

    Now that i think about, he couldnt have had any brakes working either.
    Nothing safer than no bars, no brakes on a freewheeled bike.

    Good for you! What's the old cliche? Nobody ever laid on thier deathbed and said "I wish I'd spent more time at the office".

    Except Montgomery Burns.

    It's a pretty low-key capital. Especially out of session w/ the damn rushing lobbyists gone.
