Back-Up Plan

I suppose there are innumerable riding obstacles. When the bicyclist makes a plan to ride, all kinds of things can pop-up to interfere. I've had my share over the years.

Sometimes, I think ahead and prepare a back-up plan. The thinking goes like this, "If my plan to get out and ride early tomorrow morning back-fires, when might I squeeze something in later in the day?" Occasionally, I'll have multiple back-ups identified and watch for opportunities to open through-out the day.

That's the long way around to say today's afternoon ride was this morning's back-up plan. The back-up plan ride, when things finally work out, can be especially sweet... a vindication over circumstances sort of way.
