Having finally finished my errands in early evening, I drove a couple miles to a local trailhead in order to squeeze in a mountain bike ride before the sun set. Upon arrival, I unloaded my gear...bicycle, helmet, gloves, pack with water and toolkit, shoes, riding clothes...

...riding clothes?

Oops.

Ordinarily I don't care much about what I wear when I ride. My usual gear is a hockey practice jersey and whatever shorts are clean that day. But I had arrived at the trailhead in jeans and a collared shirt, and there wasn't time to drive home and back and still…

Looks perfect,

I belong to a cycle group which commutes to work on a regular basis, " The second best way to start the day" written across the chest...

Riding home is by arrangement, although it is mostly through suburbia, you get the air, sunset, nature, and connection to the landscape which is sadly missing from the everyday experience of many. An hour of power if ever there was such a thing.

Will have to get a bush basher to try out some off road options...cheers

Anything that gets us outside of our cages is good.  Even riding through urban wastelands beats sitting in a building in the middle of one watching TV.
