Saying Goodbye to My Best Friend
Today was that day that I parted with my best friend in Denmark. I rode that bike many, many kilometers. If the bike were like a rental car, I would have needed to pay for going over the kilometer limit. With the exception of when I was traveling, I rode it just about everyday.
When I returned it, the mechanic found two things broken on it so I ended up having 300 DKK taken out of the 750 DKK deposit. I broke just about even on the 500 DKK repair I had to have to replace the back wheel and tire. (750-300-500=-50 DKK)
On my way to the bicycle shop, I rode very slowly so that I could savor our last time together. It was raining so it was a perfect Danish farewell.
I hope to continue the practice of bicycling when I return home but I will need to buy a city bike.
Farvel min ven!
