Two weeks ago I was an owner of two bicycles. Today I own one collapsible bike and one broken down bike with no brakes. My old, ugly bike sat idle for many many weeks until it walked away on it’s own. For quite some time I have contemplated purchasing the folding bike. I finally did it! Today I must get some sort of fancy extra long chain to wind through all of the parts of the bike so it does not walk away when I leave it outside. I did bring it in and I will continue to bring it into my apartment each day. I do intend to ride it to the subway and many other places. I will attempt to get it on the subway with me. I will write more about that after my first attempt. Since I am in China, I will have a custom made carry case made for it to fit neatly onto a subway with me.
I have been gentle with my wounded knee for the past four weeks. The pedaling motion irritated my wound so I refrained from riding for a few weeks. Now, with caution and a knee that heals more each day I travel by my favorite mode of transportation again. The exercise bonus of the experience allows for a clear head.
