10,000km and what do you get

Toronto, 2017.11.04

I dropped by Cycle Solutions on Kingston Road to have my rear wheel looked at; they shocked me with the news it was finished. First, they told me I'd have my ride back by Tuesday. But within four hours Mike had worked his magic, and I was back in business for a bone-chilling ride down the hill.

But they handed my green machine back with the warning that that wheel was done, and not to ride another winter on it. I was surprised and dismayed (that would be a $200 expense) but then I realized I'd put at least 10,000km – and quite possibly 12,000km or more – on the beast in the past three years.

It might be time to make my beater serviceable again!

A creative person would prefer their music to be stolen and enjoyed than ignored. This is the dilemma for every creative soul: he or she would prefer to starve and be heard than to eat well and be ignored.
