Overhead I saw a bridge with more bicyclists pedaling their
wares. Is there a walkway over the Walkway Over the Hud-
son? I’m sure the guy on the recumbent bike saw it right o .
Maybe there’s a walkway under the Hudson too.
On the way back we detoured onto Route 44 where all
the businesses are. We passed a place called the “Beer Cave,”
and I wanted to stop and do some spelunking but it was
time for lunch so we stopped at the diner instead. Every-
thing is contact-less in the age of the coronavirus, so you
just point your phone at this barcode matrix that looks like
a computer threw up, and it takes you to the menu, where
you can order and pay for your food without ever eating it.
Nothing much happened so I went inside and pointed the
phone at somebody who was sitting near the counter, and
ordered a BLT by contacting his ears. I’m not sure he actu-
ally worked there, but we eventually got our food.
You need to wear a mask while on the Walkway, but com-
pliance was surprisingly low, maybe 50%, and that includes
people wearing their mask over their chin, which has been
proven to prevent people from transmitting the virus if they
breathe through their chin. For those dim bulbs out there
who confuse a global health issue with a freedom issue,
please feel free to stay home. ere’s only one way out of this
mess and that’s to have the smallest iota of common sense.
On the way home we stopped at DQ for a well-earned
Blizzard so we could replenish some of the precious calories
we lost on the bike ride. You can ask for just about anything
in a Blizzard, except for uninterrupted internet service.
