tour de bronx

47 miles – last ride of the year, most likely
serious hills toward the end of the ride near Spuyten Duyvil
enjoyable weather and great rider camaraderie

most memorable moment:
giant rider wearing a black sweater, his back looked a yard wide
his friend cycles past and says “You have a ladybug on your back”
he said “I do?”
I saw it, he did have a ladybug on this back

most beautiful scene:
four swans floating luxuriously among the reeds
crossing over to City Island/ Orchard Beach area

drivers were somewhat aggressive at times and
I had to practice non-violence in my thinking as well as riding
more or less successfully

dinner afterwards at Emilia’s, Arthur Avenue (Bronx of course)
