Today I took my cycle for a 70 mile jaunt to work. Normally I work out of state and do not have the opportunity to ride to work, so today was a special occasion. The ride in its self was a two-wheel trek of bliss. Nothing registered through my mind during that journey with the exception of the smells, sounds and adrenaline rush of the open road. There is something about weaving in out of traffic that touches off my endorphins and makes me yearn for more. Today while driving on the highway, I contemplated splitting traffic like they do in California. I have not been able to do this bucket list activity but today I imagined it and wanted so much to make it happen. Unfortunately the Art of Splitting Lanes where I live is illegal and without a license I will lose my job so splitting lanes will have to wait. Another thing I love when riding is to go fast. The faster I go the more I want to smile. This is a dangerous proposition and I can see the need for speed becoming an addictive vice. Can yearning for speed become obsessive? I was brain storming ideas on how to keep my speed within an acceptable limit. The best answer I came up with is buying a slower bike.
