It seemed like a miracle or at least an answer to an unasked prayer, the way friends can be.
When I decided not to go across the hot desert but to leave the west coast from farther north, my friend volunteered to drive our bikes up North for us. I was thrilled and I ordered a 3 bike bike rack online. It didn’t come in time so at the latest moment I bought another one in a store here as my friend was leaving that night
When we unboxed the rack we both saw that there was no way to securely lock the bikes on the car so she couldn’t take them.
The next day the online bike rack came in the mail.
I put it in my car to return it.
That night my car was robbed. They took the bike rack.
