Today I don't get out on my bike until the early evening. The light is low and the shadows are growing long. I ride over to Lake Sammamish State Park and see a duck swimming along as the last of the daylight stretches across the water.
It's feeling like spring time and these are the busy days at the bike shop. But here, on the shore of this lake at the end of very full day, it is very quiet, clear and calm. It grows cooler as the sun goes down and now it's time for me to roll on.
My bike's own light punches a small hole in the growing darkness, a tunnel that leads me home.
5 miles for the day.
Keep 'em rolling,
