It will be tough. We are already very closely bonded. A few people have stated interest. My daughter wants to make sure that I determine the adopter is a good fit, and she's right.

A photographer friend took those pictures. He's very good.

The “generic” turn-around point of the workday lunchtime ride. Three rides at work with this bike so far and only one made it to the turn-around. The other two rides were cut short by flat tires.

This puts some streets under water. And it's still raining. Levels have been going up and down by 3-6 inches, based on how much it rains, and how much water they allow to run from one lake to the other. We're sandbagged in, backflow valve in place, sump pump at the ready, but still hoping for the best. Between this and the construction, my commute changes on a daily basis.
I can relate !!

I liked this bike shop's 'store front'.

It's in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
I snapped pic while on vacation last month riding along bike path nearby on a rental bike.

I have snapped pics of quite a few of my bikes with the longhorns near the Dallas, Texas Convention Center.

It's on one of my regular routes when I'm up for doing about a 40 mile loop around the city.

Back to fall sports with my two 9th grade daughters. It keeps us young. One loves being a setter in volleyball and the other plays some serious lockdown defense on the varsity soccer team.
