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

You can get a sense of just how good Robinson was from his victory in the 20th stage of the 1959 Tour de France, from Annecy to Chalon-sur-Saone."
