I wish my days were like that.
Too bad mine are fulfilled with sitting in classrooms being force fed formulas and having to take notes on Beowulf.

I feel your pain, I'm being put to sleep by Siddhartha in English class right now. Every day I can't wait until I go to work.

Trust me, the typical 9-5 work week offers much less freetime than either high school or college. Enjoy it while you can.

Niice.. Was hoping for more trail action, but the skills and vibe made up for it. Good tune too.
Slick editing.
Reminds you what biking's about.

Go ride and stop getting so anal about specs.
