No Big Yellow Taxi Gö Feldweg Omloop – August 9 2022 ´Road´ Ride

Omloop Home

Es war gut, den 40 km langen Gö Feldweg Omloop im Abstand von nur wenigen Tagen zu fahren.

Bei der vorherigen Fahrt wurde ich von einer Frau auf einem gelben MTB aus den 1990er Jahren überholt. Das Lied Big Yellow Taxi spielte daraufhin in meinem Kopf. Diesmal habe ich Joni Mitchell nicht gesungen. Alles gut!

Last week I rode the same route of the 40km+ Gö Feldweg Omloop but I made a small navigational error and so I wanted to put this right.

On that ride I was overtaken by a woman on a 1990s yellow mountain bike who compounded the felony by wearing Flip Flops. I wished her a good day as she ate up the road ahead of me.

When the yellow MTB went by the song Big Yellow Taxi began to repeat in my mind.

It was good to reride the route today and so soon as it gave me a good indicator of whether I am recovering, and I am because I did not sing Joni Mitchell. A dose of physiotherapy has helped!

Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell 1970.

“They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swinging hot spot
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.”
