Someone asked me last week if I had any bikey Valentine’s Day plans with Mr. Dottie. I answered, “No, we’re just going to dinner at our favorite French restaurant, Bistrot Margot.”
Then I thought for a second and amended that answer with, “Well, of course, we’ll be riding our bikes there.”
Bicycling is such an ingrained part of our lives – it’s always there somewhere. But unlike driving or taking public transit, biking is not simply another mundane transportation option. It’s fun and adds something special to every occasion!
For this reason, I would say that our little French dinner was a bikey Valentine’s Day, with bicycling being the perfect aperitif (to stimulate the appetite) and digestif (to aid in digestion).
Of course, fancy truffles and flowers are always welcome, too.
But above all – bike love!
P.S. February 14 is long gone and so are all those truffles!
