I miss biking whenever I see friends on Facebook who enjoy cycling for recreation. It’s been decades since I learned to ride a bike, and it’s not even my own. When I was younger, I would go to the park with friends to rent bikes and spend hours enjoying the cool breeze.
Last week, my daughter and I purchased our first bikes. The bikes are surplus items from Japan.
The sturdy-looking bikes are foldable and can be taken comfortably to parks.
My daughter and I are determined to learn to use it (sadly, with 30 years of not riding a bike, I have to relearn to balance).
We are looking forward to more time for practice and eventually enjoy biking in the neighborhood.
I wrote about this six years ago and haven’t made a follow up yet. But I hope Barangay officials in our area are keeping up with it now. In a related development, kudos to our hard working local officials for keeping and maintaining peace and order in our barangay.
Local officials in our barangay are doing a good job for implementing a curfew for minors. This move will lessen incidents of petty to serious crimes involving young people. They should also sponsor more sporting events to encourage young people particularly out of school youth to get into sports such as basketball and chess or music for those with musical inclination. Activities like these would keep young and older kids off the streets at night. I hope barangay officials will continue to provide worthwhile activities for out-of-school youths to make them more productive individuals.
People, men and women, can often be found enduring a sportsman’s test of foul weather. I am sure most avid sportsmen will agree. Whether fishing, hunting, hiking, or canoeing you will find yourself in the most unpleasant of weather. Anyone can pass a sportsman’s test of foul weather. All you need is the correct foul weather clothing.
Three things I found are needed to create the correct jacket. First and foremost, it must be waterproof. The jacket must be able to keep you dry. This is especially true when tested in early spring or late fall.
Which brings us to the second necessity. The jacket needs to be able to keep you warm. The endurance of many sportsman can be tested in the cold and rainy seasons. Sometimes you time outdoors is spent in misery instead of pleasure.
The third item is to have the right look. Similar to your child arguing with you because that yellow raincoat looks so “uncool”. You want to be able to have a jacket that possesses a look you appreciate.
I found gill jackets to be one of the best. These jackets fit all three of these necessities. Their jackets are superior when it comes to keeping you dry.
