Views during lunch

Every once in a while I am able to take a ride during the lunch break from work.  Four to six miles is the usual distance and sometimes the morning has been such that I make sure I ride completely out of view for a while.

Some sights:

A friend in the parking lot.

Three fenced in dogs, all barking at me.

A sofa, much used, set on the street.

Folks sitting on the porch. Most of them wave back.

A young couple hauling a wagon filled with scrap metal.

Hydrangeas gloriously blue and roses flaming red.

Young children helping Mom in the garden or playing at the park.

Alleyways in the middle of a block.  Sometimes I ride them to see what is there.

Trees cut down and cut up.

Rock piles.

Tree limbs stacked on a front porch [??]

People out walking during their own lunchtime.

School yards filled with children.

Houses being rehabbed.

Yards filled with flowers.

There is always plenty to see and a route ridden twice is never the same.

Stay happy,

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??

    I agree that a route is always different however familiar.

      I find on my noontime rides an enjoyment of seeing the same homes or yards. I would like to have at least a passing acquaintance with some of the folks.
