Dropping the Kids off

When I picked up my son from soccer practice recently he asked me, “why do you always pick me up on the Bettie?” And I replied, “because it’s not a car and it’s fun.” He nodded and smiled.

This week when the children go back to school they’ll also ask me to not bling the bell when I drop them of at or embarrass them in any other way … “embarrassed, I asked? What other kids get dropped off by bike?” They’re all in SUVs, how boring!

For me though, racing on manure-splattered roads near farms has always made me nervous, like I’d get some butt-bug, like Tom Danielson did.

“Watch out for hills,” Sjodin said. “You gotta man up if you’re going to ride a ”fixie’ to the U.”

Man up … fixies are “manly.”
