Today I added twenty miles to the new bike, a record for me you can say. I’ve been pushing the outbound distance from home out further a bit at a time. I’ve been riding the Bonanza Trail. Sadly, I came upon this tent and another sleeping place beyond it on the left. The tent appeared to be empty, I feel so sad for these people.
Only they know how they landed in this situation. I also feel a bit angry because this shit shouldn’t be happening in this country, should it? Further on down the trail and not in a tunnel, I came upon a young woman who was all wrapped up in a large comforter and sound asleep very directly next to the concrete trail I was riding.
People were walking their dogs and so forth as they passed by this woman. Again, it’s so sad! I sincerely wish that I could do something for these people that would really, actually help them. A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out! I’m sure that the homeless choose Las Vegas for its very mild year-round climate too.
All of this sad stuff aside, today was a perfect day for a long bike ride, and the bike performed perfectly the entire trip. Tonight, it will get a good spiffing up!
