We had a nice cold spell here in Virginia for a bit. Light jacket weather – you know, the kind that makes you shiver first thing in the morning, makes the air crisp and pleasant, makes you say “whoa, my hair looks good today”. Now it`s LATER in the year and it`s humid, warm, and not at all pleasant. I live in a swamp.
Oftentimes for the first few rides of the winter I find I enjoy the process of layering up to go battle the cold. There’s something…. Exhilarating about it? I suppose I’ll have to wait awhile longer though – sorry for my northern friends, you guys get the short end of the stick. I’ll be joining you soon enough 😉
I recently bought an actual camera, a little Panasonic point and shoot, it conveniently fits into my jersey pocket! It`s been a real treat to go on my normal rides only to stop when I see something beautiful and snap a picture of it. The beauty of it is that I get to flex my creative muscles while riding my bike – it’s a win win really.
I went on a lovely evening ride recently with my new toy; I planned it to turn around at the top of the tallest bridge in the vicinity, while the sun was setting. I was not disappointed! I got some awesome shots, enjoyed the ocean breeze, and really harmonized with myself and the world around me. I think they call it “vibing” these days.
Either way. It was a great ride.
There`s some big changes coming. Really big. And I think they`re gonna change the way I bike (and blog) forever.
