Five Great Miles And the Early Signs of Addiction
View Larger Map
This bicycle thing is getting to be addictive.
On Saturday, Ryan Callahan and I rode from my house to a friends house to Chris Madrids and back to my house. It was a grand total of only 5 miles, but 5 great miles, all places we "needed" to go only we didn't go by car.
There is definitely something to the freedom of the bicycle, the feeling of propelling yourself, and the connectedness to what is around you. There is a beauty in the solitude of riding alone and there is a very cool camaraderie in riding with someone else...unless they spend the whole ride on your back wheel (Ryan).
Like I said, this bicycle thing is getting to be addictive.
