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

L.L.Bean Trailblazer Ted King

"Ted King believes that the simplicity of competitive cycling makes it entirely comprehensible worldwide. "Pedal hard and first guy across the line wins," is his boiled-down description of the sport. Ted "got it" when he was a freshman at Middlebury college in Vermont. After watching his older brother Robbie win the 2002 National Collegiate Road Championship he decided to devote himself to competing on two wheels.
Pedaling hard, Ted has gone on to perform at the highest levels of road racing. He competed in the 2013 Tour de France and is set to ride again with Team Cannondale in 2014. Often, riders like Ted get overlooked. His role on the team is a domestique – a rider who’s job it is to support the team leader, from riding in front and creating a draft, to giving up his bicycle if necessary. He has helped his team leader to close the 2013 season with more victories than any other World Tour rider. But unlike many support riders, Ted has also made a name for himself and is very popular with American fans"
