First days of spring here in Wis! It was 80 degrees out when I was commuting home. There was a little breeze from the lake. It just felt like I was flying, always having to upshift, so I wouldn't start spinning out of control. Flying past traffic, making short work of the hills---man, this is fun!!

aint it so nice to feel so effortless, to soak up the warm sun, to simply enjoy, to be locked into the physics, and to fly in a way not possible by any other means.

You got it, bro!

ride hard, have fun, be safe.
Ever notice:with the wind: "I am huge man mr.super cycling god!"128

"See me now World. Behold this majesty. As I! fleet of wheel, keen of mind, with seeming effortlessness roar by under the subsonic whir of my transmission in perfect harmony with the inner planetary centrifuge. Herald my coming, call to the others! That they too shall bear witness! He has come! He is coming! See the ripple I cast as the air is pressed before me, and ushers me on! This great and mighty thorougfare! Ich bin ein super-duper Ubermench!!"

and then the big sweeping turn into the wind onto juuust enough of an incline and *poof*! "What be this!? I am slowing. This force. "I AM HEADWIND. GREAT AND MIGHTY"What has become of me! Ist Gott Tott!My powers...Destroyed! look away, I...am...hideous! i am really just a dingle berry? I suck. i am little. i am shrunken. i am so far, from home <:("

But wait! I love! This cycling madness, and soldier on! And it's into the drops head down and into the wind I shall lumber,I grunt like the animal I am proud to be: 'I will work! I am mighty! I will go forward!....I will pitch the damn thing into the hatchback and hit the drive through...
keep going, bro, you're in a groove now ;>) nmSlipstream
