another hot sunny day in happy bike land
Sunshine! Hot temperatures! It's looking a lot like summer is here.
It's nice to replace the early season risk of freezing to death with the lesser risk to our mortality of getting a radiation burn from our sun's toxic rays.
Speaking of radiation, we've been reading about Marie Curie and her immensely well-deserved two Nobel prizes (Did you know that her daughter received a Nobel prize also? And that Otto Hahn shamefully and scandalously prevented Lise Meitner from receiving a well-deserved Nobel prize? But I digress.) Nothing to do with bikes, we're just saying that our understanding of radiation owes a lot to her and these other women and the fact that Marie Curie sacrificed her life learning about the mysteries of radioactivity and radiation before the dangers became well known, so put on your sunscreen and protect yourself from that dang dangerous solar radiation.
Our prescription for happiness and fun today is to get out and explore your city, your countryside, and try to have a (or another) "best day of the year."
This involves turning off your computer, getting out of your chair, putting some air in your bike tires and getting out of the house. North, south, east west, it doesn't matter, just do it.
(Note: this is post number 1500! - now we are taking our own advice and shutting off the computer and going outside and riding in some beautiful Quebec countryside)
