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

Potato, Potato! A Quick After Work Ride

So after work I road to Potato.  I didn't really have Potato in mind when I woke up this morning and thought about my ride.  I new my ride was going to be on the mountain and I had a bit of difficulty deciding which bike to take, the CX Kona or the hardtail Trek.  I ultimately decided on the Trek. 

So the idea to ride to Potato came to me a couple hours before I left work.  Daylight is starting to creep away but I really wanted to maximize my ride. I wanted to get a good work out so I few calculations in my head and I knew I could make it to Potato.

My Trek has gears, which was a nice treat while blasting up the mountain.  I was at awe by the seemingly unlimited amount of gear choices and I was at the top of Potato in no time.
