    Just riding a bike for the simple pleasure of doing it?
    Nah, I can’t see that catching on.
    It’d mean going outside for one thing!

    😉

    Took the long way home from work today.
    Went to visit a friend who lives on a narrow boat and is currently parked near here.
    Overtook a roady on a Sustrans route.
    Got overtaken by a mountain bike on the tow path.
    Rode some paths I haven’t ridden for a while.
    Got “chased” by a playful dog in the woods.

    All in all, a nice ride.

    A boat would be ‘moored’.

    Not parked.

    As you were. 🙂

    Yes, but wouldn’t it have been nicer on a more modern wheel size?

    A boat would be ‘moored’.

    True enough, unless it’s up on a trailer I guess, or lives permanently out of the water like a kinda … long narrow park-home.

    Although … the original sentence as it stands could still be fine, given that semantically – it is the friend that is parked near here, not necessarily the narrowboat on which they [also happen to] live (which could be out of the water anyway).

    Having seen TDF won with oval chainrings surely the logical progression would be oval wheels. 26 on the low bit and 29 on the high.
    Triple win if you ask me.

    Cartesian oval? Or cassini oval? Or plain ellipse?

    Reference the boat parking pedantry;
    If we can accept the figure of speech “I’m parked on the road” to mean “I have parked my car on the road” for example, then the sentence is grammatically and terminologically correct, as she owns both a car and a boat, and the former is usually parked close to where the latter is moored. She either walks or cycles between the two.
