Snowbirds

24 Snowbirds

Now I’m on the flip side and I am excited as the first snowbirds appear. It is just like school days when we were young – “What did you do this summer?” And with our current age ranges – “How’s your health?”

The seasons are changing fast north of us, even if we Floridians enjoy warm weather almost year-round.  In the summer runners, skaters and walkers I’ve never seen before were out and about on the Trail.  Some were students off for the summer, although I think some of the walkers enjoyed being out and about without so many cyclists whirring past them.

For many years I was a snowbird and looked forward to seeing my friends down here.  Now I’m on the flip side and I am excited as the first snowbirds appear.  It is just like school days when we were young – “What did you do this summer?” And with our current age ranges – “How’s your health?”  Some bring new bicycles; others flood David’s Cycle World, Inverness Bicycle & Fitness and Trailside Bikes for tune-ups.  I keep a mental checklist in my mind of whom I have seen and haven’t.

Now I can walk into Cattledogs’ new Inverness location and run into other cyclists seeking caffeine.  At Pine Street Pub cyclists are often sitting outside in the afternoon, enjoying a brew.  And then there’s those who can’t wait to pedal over for a dose at the Ice Cream Doctor!

It is a good time of year!
