Last week the family was at a sports store and I rode a cycle there for the first time in many years. We were looking to buy a bike for the younger girl and found one that could be adjusted to an adult size as well.

And today I took it out. A little scared since I felt a bit unsteady on two wheels and nervous about the traffic. But out I went and pedalled around for about 45 minutes. Different body parts made their presence felt and I smiled thinking it is nice to be a beginner.

A light drizzle, empty roads and child-like freedom. A perfect Sunday morning.
