Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

The Beat Down at Bonelli Park

Today I rode around Bonelli Park on my road bike. On Wednesdays, a big group of riders will meet up and ride laps around the park. The pace is fast and there is no stopping.

I was feeling pretty tired and could barely hang on the back of the pack. It didn't take long for me to be dropped. I continued riding around the park and would meet up with other small groups of riders. I'd pick up my pace and try to hang on with them for as long as I could but in the end every group would drop me.

When I finished my ride, I was wiped out, dizzy, my legs were sore and I felt sick. In fact, I still feel sick and its 9:45 pm.
