(I am writing in the early am; hmm?)
The act of riding a bike is rewarding, but there is so much more. Make it a mountain bike and things improve greatly. The trail is a car free sanctuary. The fall colors, the crispness in the air, squirrels foraging around and the thoughts of the upcoming weather changes mandating indoor training enhance the spirit of the ride.
The best part of the evening pre-dinner ride?
Riding with your best pal makes it even better. Conversation, grins, riding fast (when she feels like it), riding easy- as the MTB’ers speak, “it’s all good.”
Yes, indeed it is.
It’s 0630, on to the compu-trainer.
