Bike Light Parade Tonight

I post through squinty, strained eyes while I wait for a tiny, one-of-a-kind repair shop to fix my glasses. Not till tomorrow will I be able to resume my normal level of functionality in anything where print is involved. Meanwhile I will be limiting my activities to things involving large physical movements, such as preparing for yet another leaf day (tomorrow), and participating in the following bike event this afternoon.

Here is a message I received from City Commissioner Sam Adams, who is an ardent advocate of biking. I plan to attend. Hope to see some of you there at 5:00. Do say hello. (Look for someone in a yellow biking jacket covered with rain gear. Ha ha.) I’ll report back about it tomorrow in case you can’t make it.
