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

This just in!

So the weather’s still absurd. Nonetheless I went out for 3.5 hours. It’s similar to riding the trainer in the shower. I guess the rain’s been falling long enough for the rivers to flood, so midway into my ride I came across a closed road. King 5 news was there with their big truck like there was some sort of breaking news goin’ down. I rode by and took a picture of them. I reckon their presence alone warrants a story from someone… Anyway, usually the floods signal that the rain will go away in a couple months. So I’ve already got my hopes up, I’m looking forward to the first good rain free day to come some time in May.
