536 miles since Memorial Day

A bicycle ride happens every weekday at 8:30 am. It isn’t always fun doing this – creaky knees and unslept calves stoke the devil in your mind: “Don’t bike today”. You find it within yourself to persevere. At first, out of shame; the ride is less than 4 miles each way (come on!). Then, to avoid going to the gym. Then, to feel the wind on your face. To relive a rustic weekend ride out of town. To escape the loneliness of living far from a loved one. To be on a bicycle again. Just to be.
