Day 26. 30 Days of Biking

Takes 41 minutes to get from Bushwhacker to Dunlap along the Rock Island Greenway/Rock Island Trail.

At least it’s 41 minutes if you are me, and you end up booking it.

Riding the Bianchi Pista today, past dogs on long leashes, children on short ones, and squirrels that Must Cross the Trail Right Now In Both Directions.

Nuts.

This is the closest thing I have to an Italian bike. Not because of the parts; because of the decals.

By the way, Taiwan is that special neighborhood of Milan where they make everything.

All kidding aside: Does it matter where a bicycle is made?

Absolutely.

They do great work in Taiwan.

And the fixed-gear drivetrain is simplicity itself.
