I have a confession to make…

My mother-in-law and step father-in-law have matching Trek leisure bikes… They’re six or seven speeds and they look… Well, like leisure bikes.

So we, the whole family, decided to take a trip down to the Clare side of the Pere-Marquette rail trail, the West side, and I went out to the shed to grab the bikes to load them up; you know, to help out…

I couldn’t pass on the temptation to take his bike for a little spin – to confirm my prejudice against them of course…

My word, it was like riding a La-Z-Boy recliner!

I’m going to have to say a dozen Hail Mary’s, six Our Father’s and flog myself – 50 lashes with a wet noodle – and pray that the lasciviousness of that momentary lapse is removed and that I’ll be forgiven by Middle-aged Baby Jesus, who is obviously a roadie. God forgive me, I feel…dirty!

I’ll write up a real post on the festivities in the morning as the rail trail is one of Michigan’s finest cycling achievements. It was a rockin’ good time. A perfectly sunny, mildly breezy, 79 degree (f) day. It was perfection for a two-wheeled excursion.
