100WW —Stepping It Up

880C47F7-258F-473D-A7E5-58DA0FFA9EB2.jpegLiam was tired. He rode for nearly six hours and cycled nearly 100 miles, but when he reached the trail’s end, he saw that the only way down was via a set of steep, wooden steps. He just didn’t know if he was energetic enough to pick up his bike and carry it down.

Should he carry his bike down to the road or turn around and go back along the trail to find a more hospitable point of egress?

“Fuck it,” he said, hopping on his bike and bouncing down the steps. Sadly, he didn’t quite make the 90 degree turn.
