A Quote To Remember

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

When riding a bike there is always those visuals, the simple challenges, this quote speaks to one of the most remarkable of ideas, that it is possible to overcome, to transcend as she so adequately put it, and to keep the rotations going and the progress happening. So very clear and very simple to recognize that to Ride a bike More is to deal with all the variables the good and the bad of it.

The first day of February, and 26 Days to make it a habit to ride my bike more. To Do it is the objective, to follow through must be the directive.
