I like riding my bicycle, but I haven’t ridden it much recently until today.
Today I rode around my local area for an hour, from 5pm to 6pm. Dusk is my favourite time of day, but this ride was not enjoyable.
I was on neighbourhood patrol, especially checking the local park and some narrow streets near the station. There must be thousands of people all over Japan doing the same thing every day.
It was dark by 6pm, and there was no-one in the park. There was no trouble at all, and I spent one hour thinking what a waste of time.
The next day my legs felt very tight, and it was actually a good feeling; my 1 hour of cycling had been very good exercise and I have promised myself to cycle more often.
