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.

But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Porte will lead a Grand Tour team for the first time this May when he is Sky's main rider at the Giro d'Italia."
