Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

Kauai- day 4

Kapaa, Kauai, HI
Sunday, November 26, 2006

I went on my first Kauai ride today & I was rather impressed by the drivers. They’re very good, much better than the bunch I dealt with in Oahu and Maui. Had the drivers been bad it’d have made no difference though, the weather and terrain are such that it warrants riding whether it’s suicide or not. Of course I didn’t know for sure that the riding was going to be superb until today. I rode for 2 hours in what seemed to be an endless garden/jungle thing. The temperature was ~80 and the clouds were nowhere to be seen. After riding I went for a swim in the sea in front of the hotel. The water’s ideal… like everything else.
I am an excellent photographer... yeah? The one on the bike, that's no hands...
