Seeing your daughter smile on a bright, sunny day while riding behind you on her tag-a-long.
Coming back home after 22 miles of riding with your daughter, and your wife -the single greatest person in your Universe- is standing at the gate in your backyard, gate open, and smiling.
Getting trapped into a sidewalk session with two Mormon's on bikes, out on their 2-year 'Mission', having a few folks in cars yell [at me] to leave 'them' alone, having one of the two Mormon's walk over to that car, now at a red light, and tell them, "No, we're bugging him!", having the driver of that car look pinched and then drive away... and 45 minutes later, actually having the other Mormon youth tell me, after looking at their watches repeatedly, "We should get going... yes, we'll consider rethinking our convictions to the church, thank you for the informative talk on organized religion. And yes, we agree, the Osmond's -as a whole- are very creepy".
Eating a not-overly-ripe banana, while sitting in the grass and sunshine at the canal between Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles... while Chloe scrambled around trying to catch a butterfly.
Talking to my buddy BBBB at that same spot mentioned just above, and him telling me over the phone that, "Yes, I'll upgrade you to SS on your next bike, at no xtra charge... because you are one bad-ass motha". ;-)
Watching 4 guys in a pace line, with full-on Time Trial gear, going -maybe- 12mph while Chloe and me passed them at 19mph, with Chloe honking her newish Honka Hoota and shouting, "EYE OF THE TIGER BABY... EYE OF THE TIGER!!!".
And tomorrow... the weather's supposed to be even better.
Keep Ridin'... Always
