03/07/11 Options


More crazy, undecided weather here. Saturday was sunny and 60°, rainy and warm yesterday, and this morning we woke up to discover that there had been snow overnight. Not much accumulation, just enough that car windows had to be brushed and a reminder that winter is still lurking.

A number of people have asked what I plan to do about the class. I don’t really have an answer. Writing to request at least a partial refund for the cost of the course is a definite. Beyond that my options are:

  • Re-take the course
  • Get my learner’s permit, ride and practice with Dan
  • Continue enjoying the back of the bike

Each option has its own pros and cons. During the ride this weekend I’d occasionally think yeah, that would be nice… But thoughts of how relaxed I was, the comfort of the new bike, and contentment in general far outweighed the ‘what ifs’. I really like my new throne, I’m looking forward to warmer weather and more rides. So I guess what I’ve decided for now is why mess with a good thing?

I very much appreciate all the comments and emails, and will get caught up on responses as soon as possible!
