It was after work one late afternoon. The weather was marvellous. I was cycling to swim in the outdoor pool in Lörick. Since I lived in Oberkassel, my route took me along a scenic pathway that provided a view of the river Rhine.
The cycle path was the width of only two bikes. I was one of them. As they neared, the eyes of one cyclist widened at an impending danger. The other’s didn’t. He continued daydreaming.
