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

Fair sailing

North Bend, WA

Today the weather finally gave in and the rays briefly made a visit to the northwest. It was enough to get me out the door and onto the road for a reunion with the world. I can’t believe how relaxing it is to get back on the bike free of the trainer; you can actually turn the wheel ‘n stuff… unbelievable! It looks like this’ll be just a brief lapse though, as tomorrow it is actually set to snow- again. Apparently it’s gonna get cold and icy, & of course they’re not too motivated to get out them snow blowers, so, well, you know how it goes…
