Changing Gears

Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.
Charles M. Schulz

I told the salesperson at the bike store that I wanted a woman's cruiser, with no confusing gears to muddle the enjoyment of a bike ride. Facing a steady wind that had bay sailors happy and hilly urban terrain that goes unnoticed by motorists, I sure am glad that I listened to her advice and bought a bike with gears. I may not be using all 18, but a ride is certainly more enjoyable with the five or six that I do use.
