Before I reached Chicken King in Hernando, however, there was sudden shift in my bike seat.
I know, I know, months ago I promised I’d learn how to maintain and service my bicycles. I can install and take off the bike racks from my car, and I can put air in the tires. I tried to change a tire recently, and I couldn’t even get the tire off the wheel!
It really wasn’t something I could have anticipated, but I was happily biking alongside one of my bicycling friends – she is faster than I, but this day I was flying (for me) at about 15 mph, headed north. Before I reached Chicken King in Hernando, however, there was sudden shift in my bike seat. I stopped and looked at my long wheelbase recumbent bike and found a bolt had broken, loosening my seat too much to continue a long ride. Sadly, I turned back and made my way to the Inverness Bicycle and Fitness shop. Owner Sherry Bechtel and her mechanic quickly replaced the broken bolt and I was all set.
My group was long gone, so I headed south to Robin’s Country Kitchen, just north of Floral City. Her biscuits are really tasty. Being alone, I sat at the counter and chatted with the wait staff and Robin’s husband. They weren’t crowded, but one of the things I like is that they will fill the tables by introducing strangers to one another if it’s a full house. It’s always fun to meet new people!
I biked back to my car, passing Al and his Chihuahua Lola on the way.
