Ever have one of those rides......

I started out this morning with a headache and just a little grumpy. No particular reason, just one of those days. Started out on my usual route and about the 13th or 14th mile, it all just changed. I don't know what it was but the pedals just spun easier, my speed went up a little and life was good. I added some miles and a hill (there are not many in north Texas) to the route just because I could. It's a great day for a ride. Maybe I will do it again this evening. Thanks for letting me tell you.

Yup. I know exactly what you're talking about. I have a few of those rides myself.

Stories like this make me glad I picked up biking as my new outdoor activity. I haven't had one of those rides myself yet, but knowing it could happen to me, I get encouraged to go out and ride at times when I'm down and out or grumpy. Thanks for sharing!

What happened is simple; you entered a world not of sight and sound, but of feeling....

You entered. . .The Cycling Zone.

I almost live there....................
