One Minute Fiction # 21 July, 2021

Cranny is hosting this challenge

What’s the ”One Minute Fiction” challenge about? Easy. Each week I’ll provide a prompt to inspire you to write a very short story. The idea is to manage to type your whole story in a minute or less. Of course, you can think about it before hitting the keyboard, and you can take all your time to edit it afterwards… Just make sure to tag your story with #1MinFiction, and create a pingback to my week’s challenge post, so I can easily find it! So, here is this week’s picture;



After giving the matter a lot of thought, I bought myself a cycle. A regular bicycle which I could ride on the road. I wanted to exercise my knees but doing so on a stationary bike was tedious. I had been doing that in the gym but I felt that going cycling in open air would not only more entertaining and rewarding but I was sure that I will stick to it longer.

My only mistake was leaving it without a lock. When I came to ride my bike on second day, there was no trace of it!

I guess it’s back to the stationary bike again. Ah, sadness!

  1. We had visitors when my first son was born… Hubby had his ‘childhood’ Swinn Bike in the garage… which was left open – and the bike walked… didn’t expect that in suburbia. But It happens everywhere.

    The old saying is that ‘Locks are for honest people.’

      1. I know my dad had back issues and his doctor told him years ago bike riding is bad for the back. Of course now they have differently designed bikes that are easier on the back. For now I think I will stick with my “bicycles” under water with a weight belt.
