Back in the saddle again. About a hundred miles in the past three days, which is somewhat surprising. I didn’t ride for weeks. Not sure what I was doing. Travel mostly. And a broken toe. And I caught a knee at airport security when an old timer in front of me about went down. My knee hit this plastic divider. Hurt so bad I almost puked. Then had to sit on a plane for 4.5 hours. When I tried to stand up it was bad news. Doesn’t bode well for cycling, but I just went for it. It feels wonderful to be on a bike, as many of you know. The physical part is nice, but the mental gain from sitting and having NOTHING else to do but think is a truly epic experience. I had to dodge several Instagramers during these rides. One lady was IGing her dog and two and a half hours later she was in the same spot still taking photos of the same dog. My only question was “Holy shit, what battery do you have?” Lots of bewildered, lost-robot, phone zombies in the path over these miles. Like an obstacle course. I can’t wait for it to get so bad they taking each other out. I’m waiting for the day. Go pedal!
