I am not sure where to put this, or, even what to say... or even how to say it but...
The more I read on here (and forgive me for going at a slow pace)
Biking seems to encompass every part of ones being.
When you are out there, you are out there...
Facing the world, the weather, your mind, your body, your spirit.
your alone, yet, at other times, with people.
Daytime, night-time, sunshine, rain, wind, cold, heat, snow.
Camping, cooking, eating...
Pressing forward, learning limits...
Living in such a way...that makes you feel like you are really living.
Your are forced to deal with every aspect of life in the real.
If you do not eat right, you suffer...and you could be miles from no-where when that happens.
You learn right there and then, to live with your mistake. One that you do not want to repeat...
because in some instances, it could cost you your life.
I just stand amazed... its sort of like stepping back in time and experiencing life the way it should be.
If that makes any sense at all.
