Morning Bike Ride

I discovered my bike has had a rough winter. The handlebars are twisted, the speedometer and bell are missing, the basket holder is missing. I know it sounds like an old lady bike but it makes me happy. The speedometer and bell are useful for work outs. The basket is great for going to the market and putting produce in to bring home. Oh well......The debate will be - do I buy a Japanese bike or wait a year until we're in the states and leave this one here. Probably the latter. 

This morning was beautiful for a bike ride.  Stacia was happy to go with me and my lopsided bike.

This road can get busy

Most of the roads are rural 

See the mountains! 
I love all the early morning greetings we get as we ride by our neighbors and through the fields.  This is a great time of year to simply observe.

Newly flooded field of rice

This field has dried out enough to be mud. LOL 

After a rather harrowing sharing of our narrow lane with trucks and such...we made it to the smaller produce market. I bought spinach, bananas, apples and an onion.....filled my back pack (since the basket is out of commission).  Stacia bought....

Chocolette icesu Stacia gets a bit steadier in the traffic....we'll attempt to ride to the big produce market by us - the foot onsen/organic restaurant/strawberry field market! 

Choosing Joy!
