Snow didn’t dampen afternoon

  • Print

I decided it would be a great time to see if there would be a sunset visible from the bypass around Selkirk on its western side.

The weather was reasonable as I left town and pedaled a mile or so west of town when suddenly my bike chain jumped from its channel drive wheel. Suddenly I was without means to pedal and get anywhere.

Then it began to snow.

As I struggled to rectify this on the shoulder of the highway, (I had no tools with me) a shiny black van stopped to enquire about my predicament. It did not take long for Rob, the driver who lives in Petersfield, to load me and my wounded bike into his mobile warmth and comfort and deliver me safely to our Selkirk doorstep.

What a wonderful finish to a snowy, but partially successful, biking adventure.

Thank you, Rob.

— Al Cartlidge, Selkirk
