Quick Cyclist

Whoa! She’s flying! Pink knitted cap under bike helmet, backpack straps seizuring behind her in the eddies rip-curling around her body, steadily hunched over the handlebars, eyes focused on the fast-forward speed of fruit trees and slow-motion people. She disappears down the shadow-speckled length of the street faster than she ought to. A boy with a bike lock slung over his shoulder like a bandolier sees only one-fifth of her look of impatient derision as she swerves around him. For a moment she crosses the yellow line, then gets back into line, and she’s gone! So speedy, I’m left behind!
