Riding my bicycle up a some big long hill
Goin' up's a lotta work but to me it's a thrill
Pushin' on the pedals, and I'm panting like a dog
It's worth it when I get there 'cause it leads to my girl.
Come ride with me baby, let's us give it a whirl.

Sundays with my baby on my new tandem bike.
She's holdin' on behind me, yeah you know that's what I like
Zoomin' down by lakeside, through some morning fog
Speedin' 'round the corners with the wind in our hair.
Best thing about her is, she likes to ride bare.

A wonderful take on the prompt! Love the rhythm to this piece. Flows well through starstruck eyes.

Godiva rides double along
the lake, fogbound, hidden,
peddling hard; quite the
scene. The title stumps me,
pard; can't seem to find a
reference of definition, but
it remains a great world.

And a great "word"; like something
in the word verification poem
days we enjoyed in days of yore.

Ezekiel is mentioned in the Bible for claiming to have seen a wheel within a wheel in the sky.
It was probably just a migraine coming on.

Hallo, Lane!!
Why do you have the woman riding behind the man?? The LL hates this situation because all the woman gets to see is the back of the man's shirt. She thinks on tandem bikes the woman should be in front and the man behind.
She also sends greetings,as usual, to you, Meredith, and Keth.

You're right, Anonomann, it would be a lot more fun that way.

Oh, of course, "Ezekiel".
I was still working on
the typo in the title.

Well, I didn't notice that, I even googled it to be sure of the spelling.
