Back Off in #Haiku


[So if you ride your bike up Mammoth till you hit the airport, follow 3a south to Hudson, work your way through Tyngsboro and cross at 113 following that out to Pepperell where you grab the Nashua River Rail Trail south to Ayer and then head east to Billerica you end up drawing a 100 mile dick with Strava. By the way, why is I can ride through fifteen towns wearing nut huggers and an orange tank top without thinking anything of it but when I sit around a campfire with friends after the ride suddenly I’m way too self conscious about it? Anyway here’s some haiku.]
