while on my bi weekly 42 mile commute, during a brief yet significant moment I experienced a feeling that may be described as "detachment" - just me and the bike with no relation to the physical environment and without the "need" for any measure of personal performance. I was very happy with the idea that I could actually ride and enjoy physical exertion without wondering or even being the least concerned about how fast I am going or what my cadence is. the wind was blowing through my ears and even the moderate head wind was of no consequence in fact it became a source of empowerment.
today after the ride i was half tempted to pull the ol' cycle comp off with all its incongruous wiring and return to the days where feelings ruled the day. If i wasn't so tight ass about the $40 i panned out to but it, the thing would have been off today.
Would you have the guts to chuck your source of all valuable info such as miles per ride, miles per annum, avg velocity, calories, etc. etc.?
