Just a great day.

I was wishing the sun would not set and I didn't have to end the ride.

I feel the same way on a warm summer day riding down the the beach and just doing a slow crawl while people watching. It seems like the day goes on forever, but then I have to make the 8 mile trek back home. That's the worst part of the ride.

I had a nice ride Sunday even though it was about 29F. Raods were clean, but they began putting down salt in anticipation of the snow we are having. I don't ride in salty slush.

Bikes: The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996, although I modify it throughout the year for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

It's so hard to explain these days to people who don't ride. All they seem to know from cycling is the sore ass part.

It is a high that happens almost every time I go for a ride! Years ago I would need rolling papers and some good weed , but now just a sweet ride down the path with one of my classic bikes does the trick! Oh, and some water and granola bar! Joe

Plus one.
I then tell them that is why God created recumbent bicycles. I’ve never had a sore backside when I ride a recumbent. :}
