Went on my first bike ride today with a great group of people.
Started out the ride downtown. Ryan had rented a couple bikes for those of us w/o household effects, and loaned me some gear. We took off on our bikes, and melded into the honking traffic (everyone honks when they pass you, or are coming up on you, never in an angry way). We slowly made our way out of town and into the rice paddies. The scenes were surreal. Village people making concrete, shoveling gravel into baskets on their backs. Greenest of green rice paddies. Amazing views. The above embedded map is that of our ride, courtesy of Ryan’s GPS.
We’re going again tomorrow if there is no strike (bandh).
