Bears repeating

36762817011_b2e075a704_oI first published this a year and a half ago. It bears repeating as things in our country seem to have gotten worse, and I see what I oppose very clearly now. This poem is called The ABC Quick Check for a Runaway World.

The ABC Quick Check is a little pre-ride bike check that we League Cycling Instructors beat into you as a habit. But, truth be told, sometimes it’s all I can do to breathe when I get on a bike — a big reason I ride is to reduce the anxiety I feel about our changing world, and an almost-daily ride is essential for that. My tension drops almost as soon as my first foot hits the pedal. It’s like my little miracle machine.

It may also be time again for Come Now the Artists:
