The parkway has attracted yet another bicyclist, yet rather than blast past me going the other way or push past me down the trail, this one is sticking with me. My partner, in a fit of passion and devotion, gulping hard, conceded to putting herself atop a used (albeit very lightly) light blue aluminum Trek 1500 WSD road bike, with a thoughtfully upgraded Ultegra rear derailleur, for the sole purpose of getting out on the trail with me.

I was never very far from the thought she might hate it, until, that is, she kicked my butt while I was in hot pursuit. For a small frame, her 31” inseam legs with elite skater thighs were more than ready for that short top tube frame. Hell hath no fury than a woman on a bike that fits her.

Watch this space for pictures of the partnership.
