i rode to port credit and back last night and it was a perfect night for a ride. the pedals were light against my feet as i pushed and i flew along the pavement from town to town. i felt like a freight train rolling along pulling a hundred carriages full of ideas and dreams and hopes of new life and prosperity and abundance.

i am rolling past the summer of attachments to things that were foolish and niave. i was like a new-born duck following the first thing i saw as i emerged from the egg.

what a trip. what a ride. i rode from summer to fall without even realising it. the transcendance from one season to another unconsciously has allowed me to pass from futile attachments without hostility and remorse.............with a grateful knowledge that lessons were learned and the precious was kept intact.

not growing up so much as growing out and away.


with a little help from my friends.

Sounds like a great ride. I need to take a long one. Was hoping to do a century this summer but didn't get my base miles in. Maybe next year.

the ride i took last night was approximately 70 kilomteters or about 40 miles. it took about 2 hours of road time with a rest for coffee at the turn-around.

i was flying.

i find cycling to be extremely meditative. i have some of my best thoughts in the saddle.

i haven`t driven a car for over 4 years and this winter i will be forced to put a car on the road again.

oh well.
