On most weekend mornings, John has a long road bike training ride for miles and miles that lasts for hours. I usually have somewhere to be and things to do on my touring bike so we always try to make sure we ride together when we can. Bicycling gives us more time and a chance to talk about anything and everything on our minds along the way. I think it is important in every relationship to have things in common. For us one of the things is bicycling, although we both enjoy it in different ways. Sport and racing for him, transportation cycling for me. Yet we are still able to spend quality time doing the things we enjoy together.
When John and I arrived at our destination, there was not a bike rack to be found so we did what we had to do and secured our bikes to the bench. There were a few people waiting to be seated so John put our names on the wait list and grabbed us both cups of coffee. We don't mind waiting. All the more time for us to spend together.
