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 Night Before a Ride

Cervelo off the wall, tires filled, water bottles cleaned and placed on the kitchen counter, CLIFF bar next to bottles, cyclocomputer charging, sunglasses out of car, jersey, base layer, bike shorts, socks in the closet ready and in order. Drinking lots of water, eating a tad better than the night before and checking tomorrow's weather report, 65 degrees by 6:30 am, 75 by 9:00 am. Good, drink more water. Into bed early for big day of riding.

Ha that's funny. I heard Carl had a big spill down GMR.

Its Sunday morning and I'm up early today watching TDF on Versus Online.
