This week I did my first expanded visitation on my bicycle. I took some time as I planned my route via the bus system. My initial plan was to put the bike on the bus part of the way, then ride the rest. As I studied the bus route I noticed how easy it would be "cut the corner" on my bike and bypass the bus altogether.
What happened? An hour and twenty minute bus ride took only 30 minutes (I bet even less if the roads had been clear).
I arrived at the assisted facility center and noticed one glaring missing item: a bike rack. I suppose either the planners of the facility did not anticipate the residents to ride bikes or visitors. I searched and found a light post and locked up the bike.
I am curious now how many assisted living facilities for well-seasoned human beings contain bike racks?
