July 4th, somewhere in the West Bottoms of Kansas City, Missouri:
On a day that celebrates freedom,
some rules are made to be broken,
some temptations too great to be denied,
some signs too ridiculous to be respected.
Check out Rod’s blog for more great photos and stories of riding in the two Kansas City’s. Read up on how Rod met his wife-to-be by face-planting in a storm grate in the River Market (and from her POV), and how they later married on the Woodswether bike/ped bridge over the Kansas River on the Riverfront Heritage Trail.
The photo on the right is Rod and Corinna floating down the Missouri River from Kaw Point on a trashboat, their bikes strapped to the deck, on last September’s Trashboat Regatta. Cool folk.
Rod’s currently facing the prospects of heart surgery, a long rehab, and significant time off the bike. Not sure which is more daunting.
Best wishes for a successful operation, and a quick and full recovery, Rod!
