Anyway, yesterday Adam was coming over to get a free lunch and help with some more construction of the chook house. Have a look at what he arrived on! A new bike.
He bought it yesterday morning from a local bike shop. He tells me that it is a Mongoose Hybrid and has road tyres and a mountain bike frame. Adams reason for buying it were;
- To save on petrol for his car,
- To use it to run errands to the shops,
- To ride to his mates place when he has a few beers,
- To be greener, and
- Build up his strength for when we escort Phil on the first leg of his ride.
Son, some words of advice. Watch out for the other loonies on the road. Treat each parked car as a potential hazard and get that bike route map I talked about. There are some nice bike tracks around town that are a lot safer than the roads. And when you do have a few beers, you will find that you may have a bit of trouble riding it home. Balance is the first thing that goes after a few bevies. I know, I am talking from experience here!
Other than that, enjoy, and thanks for making your Dad a very proud man. You should start a blog. The title “The Greening of Adam” comes to mind!
