These past four to five weeks have brought on a lot of challenges from demanding work travel with this divorce processes with my wife to meeting someone recently. It's been a whirlwind of emotion, changes, challenges, bumps, hills, falls, and all the other bull$hit that life brings with those. I have not ridden my bike much of that time with the exception of little rides.
Yesterday I was fed up with work and decided to leave, change, grab my bike and go for a nice 21 miles ride which felt pretty damn good. Today I decided to commute and saw one deer on the way into work and three on the way back. The riding was excellent.
I missed commuting a lot. I forgot how it made you feel...... Instant pick me up. I commuted one day early last week and it brought a lot of challenges..... A lot more pot holes that were new, a lot of more debris in the road, new road closers and pissed off drivers. I think that was karma knocking on the door. Lol
I missed riding a lot. Thank goodness for it.
