You walk to Penelope's castle, summon a couple of ladders to get over the wall, summon a three seated, winged bicycle with propellers instead of wheels (aimed backwards, or course, otherwise it wouldn't work), and knock.
"Hello! I was thinking of going on a little ride! Would you like to join me?"
They join you. King John rides in the basket. You ring the bell when you feel like it.
You only have to travel about a mile before you reach the edge. There's a pretty, but poorly maintained park here, cut nearly down the middle, with one half completely missing. Beyond it, there is a featureless light gray expanse, like clouds on a rainy day.
You launch yourself past the border slightly, angled so you will coast back if anything goes wrong. You immediately find yourself having to concentrate much harder to keep King John, and more importantly, your bicycle, solid. Gravity, unfortunately, is just as reliable here. You turn back, a little bit more suddenly than you had intended. You pilot the bike over the park, breathing a sigh of relief.
