Bike 03

Into the Wind...

Into the wind
And up the hill,
But careful not
To lose the will.
Into the wind,
Who knows where it
Will blow on the return trip?

The path is clear,
The sky is gray,
Will raindrops fall,
Along the way?
The wind is just breeze,
The breeze is just wind.
I wish it wouldn't blow so--
As up the hill I go slow.

Into the wind
And down the grade,
Ride easy or
Your legs will fade.
Into the wind,
It makes it hard
To pedal down the bike path.

Into the wind
Still in my face,
I can't maintain
A steady pace.
Into the wind,
It makes it hard
To pedal down the bike path.


I tried the Cranston (aka, Washington Secondary) path today for the first time this year, and also for the first time since parts of it were underwater. I parked off West Natick, behind the Warwick Bed, Bath and Beyond, which has yet to reopen post flooding. In fact, most of the stores in the area are still closed, although the Sport Authority in the Warwick Mall did recently reopen.
