Bike to Work, day 95

I’m back!

What a beautiful day to ride.  It sure feels nice to ride gears after commuting an SS, feels nice to have that connection with the pedals.

I think it all boils down to an intense desire to fly.  I want to soar through the sky.  Cycling is the closest I’ll ever get, since I don’t plan to buy a plane.  I’m not complaining, I love the feeling.  Soaring, cutting through the world on wheels.  Exhilarating speed plumeting down hills!  Climbing with strength I didn’t think I had left–at the top I’m a champion!  Harrah!

Not a bad ride home, a little slow, though.
