There are obvious reasons to visit Maine by bike. They say it is beautiful. They say the water is cold.
But there are reasons not to go to Maine: It is frivolous to ride around on my bike all day. I’m getting too old for this. It used to be cool that I rode my bike everywhere but now it is just weird and kind of embarrassing. I think I spend too much time alone. A friend asked me to go to New Orleans with her maybe I should go to New Orleans.
