When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman
My TGIF bike ride being shared on a Saturday evening made me realise, that I am once again falling into my old pattern of making a nice simple project to a stressful endevour.
And so, I am revising the 30-Day Bike Challenge into 30 Bike Rides Challenge, not limited by time pressure of accomplishing it within a 30 day time frame.
I love this bike ride, which begun in the early morning when I brought Littlest to school, got the groceries for the weekend, and ended in the late afternoon, after our trip to Hilversum for some shoe shopping and bonding.
|Whenever middle daughter goes earlier to school, than Littlest & I, it is my habit to check to see where she parked her bike before I do my groceries.|
