Harmony Restored

Al has his road bike back. With a new frame thanks to Trek and the folks at our local bike stop, All4Cycling.

The cat and I are deeply grateful.

He is much easier to live with now.

While he waited for the replacement for his cracked frame, he used his old mountain bike. Remember, we ride a lot. It is the hot and humid Miami summer. The old mountain bike has a plush ride, but you use a lot of energy keeping up with road bikes if you are riding a mountain bike. We scaled back the miles on our rides. We gave ourselves treats. But nothing can soothe or soften the grumpiness of a man whose favorite toy, his lovely road bike, has been taken away.

But now the road bike is back. Harmony is restored in our little world.
