Things you see on a ride: Part N + 1
My favorite ride goes out through town, into the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, past the space shuttle launch pads, and out to Playalinda Beach. The road along the beach goes for about four miles along a beautiful, undeveloped beach, the best in Florida. The road ends at a nude beach. Along the road are alligators, gopher tortoises, snakes, wild pigs, and all sorts of interesting things.
Today I rode 80 miles out to the beach and back twice. It was a beautiful day; not too hot, not much wind, perfectly sunny. The second time approaching the nude beach at about mile 60, I saw a man and an attractive young woman walking along the road coming toward me. She was vigorously adjusting her sundress when - plop - out popped one of the twins. The left one, it was. I figured it was for me, but it probably was an accident.
Cycling is good for an old guy's heart.
