Evening Ride

The sun retreats earlier every night. Out on the wheels before 6 pm, The body responds with the ache of sitting all day but good overall. Eight or ten cyclists head for home as I begin my journey. One more ride before the time change. My title is last bike up tonight short lived as Suzy heads up the road as I descend. The full moon helps on the way down along with my night light. Coyote alert as I rounded a blind right hand turn around mile marker 11.39. Coyote climbs the cliff side as I slow down. I ride down a bit more alert for other creatures along the way. Spotted a large owl flapping noiselessly between oaks. A good ride. A better mood.
