"Do you remember what it felt like to go out on your bicycle when you were a kid?" I ask. "Sure, freedom" she says. "Well, that." It's a beautiful thing we do guys. And a privilege. Never take it for granted. You don't have to ride fast and scrape pegs. Just being out there on two wheels in the open air is reward enough. Like being on a bicycle, remember?

Well said! Love to be on the bike as much as possible. Nothing beats the feeling of always being totally aware and connected to your surroundings. You see new sights every time even though you've been on that same road thirty years.
