When I think about riding my bike, I think about the feeling it gives me. I think about my ever changing ability to get the most out of myself through riding the bike. I love the way it looks and the way it feels, but mostly I just love to ride it. Knowing I can ride it means I am alive and vibrant...that I am still strong. I read the Bike Forums because I love to ride. A lot has been learned from reading here and more is still to come. Ah...and the things I don't do... I don't come here to talk politics. I don't come here to examine diminished abilities. I don't come here discuss surgeries. I don't come here to lament the decline of Western civilization. I come here because I love to ride. Here I can hear others talk about their bikes, their rides, their triumphs. Here I can read the thoughts of others who "love to ride".
