It's A Way Of Life



All to often cyclists get a bad wrap for being selfish exercise junkies whose time in the saddle is more important than anything else. Now in some cases this may be true however these moments of solitude can be the only time in ones day when we actually get to unwind. It is amazing how many things you can figure out when there is nothing to distract you from your thoughts except the open road.



Without trying to sound to much like your typical Boulder neo-hippie..... This "moving meditation" is what keeps me creative, alive, and in touch with who I am and where I am going. The bike, It's a way of life....

Well said Nick. I live in Breck and a lot of people don't understand why I head to Boulder or Fruita every weekend to ride. These people are just not meant to understand.
