Here's to the color green! Green is the sign of winter releasing its grasp. Those little shoots of green precede the explosion of flowers to follow. Green makes me dream of fresh veggies to munch, and lush valleys to explore. Green makes me yearn to get on my bike.
Some folks ride their bikes in any weather: snow, sleet, hail, and fog. But green gives even reluctant pedalers the permission to Go.
Celebrate the green!
