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!
