What feels better?

I had a number of these today, and was thinking this would be a fun post while I was on my saturday morning 30-miler.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Flying down the street in a well-functioning paceline at 25+mph with seemingly no effort at all. THE reason I like to ride.

A nice fit, a smooth ride, a harsh bumby ride, a personal record time in the saddle, an all out exhausting effort, a high cadence, a slow cadence, maxing out the heartrate, a nice ride without a much effort, a nice sweaty ride, a nice cool ride, snapping a few pcs along the way? Yeah, I have to go with sex!

2nd would be finding a good saddle fit!
