Today hasn’t really started. It’s been overcast all morning but now it’s starting to get sunny. We’re going on a bike ride. 
Here’s the thing about my bike. I got it for free. It was leaned up the side of a house on my school campus for ages, and when no one claimed it, it was given to me. It’s a Schwinn World Tourist. I love it. It’s heavy, and clanky, and makes so much noise when you ride it. It has an extra lock stuck on it that I haven’t bothered to chop off. I can barely lift it. 
But riding it (riding any bike, maybe) is like being the wind.
