I remember growing up we had the beautiful Autumn leaves by late September and a lot of them were already fallen off of the trees. This is a month later (late October) and the Autumn colors are just now starting to change. Most trees are still quite green. What’s going on? No, I don’t believe in what they are calling Climate Change as it is a lie with an agenda behind it. I do believe in periods of earth’s history where the weather has changed … warming up and cooling down. Remember … there is nothing new under the sun. It has happened before and it will happen again.
What does this have to do with tadpole trikes you ask? Absolutely nothing. The only connection I can make to it is the fact that I am not enjoying seeing those beautiful colors as I am out there riding. And I truly miss them. By the time the leaves have made their annual change of color it will be later in the season and colder … at least that is my guess. It is already cooling off to where it is uncomfortable out there if one isn’t bundled up sufficiently. And I have made the mistake 2 or 3 times of not being dressed warm enough to be comfortable while out riding. I am doing something about that as it is no fun riding and being cold.
Maybe where you are what I am saying does not apply. Perhaps your leaves are already changed at their normal schedule and the colder weather either hasn’t happened yet or it has happened and you are dealing with it. I know some riders quit early in the season and put their trikes away until sometime next Spring. Not me, I try to keep riding thruout the winter. I am not thrilled with dealing with winter and it is getting harder for me as I get older. But I am still trying to keep on trikin’. And yes, I know there are some of you who don’t deal with any of this … no Autumn leaves, no cold weather, no snow, no ice, no freezing rain. Winter season is the only time I am envious. You get to keep on trikin’ while I may have to quit for awhile until the weather improves.
Whether I have pretty leaves to look at or not I am hopefully going to …
KEEP ON TRIKIN’
