A route book ended by bike shops

A rider makes the stop

If for nothing else but to gawk

At someone else’s bike,

Or wheels that are lighter than a hat.

A drink, a shirt, a tube, a bite, advice

These are things that are reasons

But the urge to go in is greater that its parts

And I want to spend money I don’t have.

The rest is welcome and feeling refreshed

Either by nourishment of encouragement.

I ride back to the other and get the same.

If there were not other responsibilities

I would gladly ride between the two all day long.
