Out there.

When my bike is loaded and I set out I am returned to a familiar and wonderful place. There is a certain freedom and excitement I feel when I have a everything I need with me.
 I tell you, 12-15 mph is a perfect speed at which to experience the world.
 I can smell the air redolent with farm animals, honey suckle, recently cut hay, or road kill. And it's all good.
I  hear the bird's songs, the bee's buzz, and  the hustle and bustle of little animals along the trail.
Swooshing down a long grade I battle butterflies for space, and take an occasional hit in the glasses from large bug. Each a beautiful experience.
 My legs pump hard underneath me while I think and sing, and sing and think. I am in a rythm when I am out there.
 I am looking forward to getting started.
