In the Spring an old man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of bicycles.

It’s a pretty mid-winter day in the high desert. Mid-forties, a little windy for comfort but the second straight day of bright sun.

And I’m sick of winter. And when I’m sick of winter I think of getting my bike out of its dark storage in Ian’s powershed. I needed to puff some air into the Jeep’s tires…


…and so while I was at it I decided to do the same for the ebike.


For reasons I don’t understand but don’t question, the bike’s instructions say that when long-term storing the battery it shouldn’t be fully charged or fully discharged. So I didn’t top it off before putting it away for the winter and it’s only about half charged, but since I hope to get more use out of it soon I figured I’d plug it in on its timer this afternoon.


But first I took it for the two-mile round trip to chicken chores. And yeah – a little cool and windy for bicycles just yet. Still early February, Joel. Suck it up.

    In view of recent developments, I can’t help but visualize a “saddle scabbard” for the Mossberg.

To the stake with the heretic!
