It's NOT a question, if it were, obviously I would say "BIKE!"
But, unfortunately, due to a very wet spring, and this little thing called life and my job getting in the way, I have, regrettably, NOT been choosing the bike. Therefore my New Year's goal to do the dreaded but oh so attempting Tour of the Unknown Coast, (100 miles, 10,000 ft of climbing...can your legs hurt more?) just isn't gonna happen. I'm still going to make the metric century on that same day happen. I'm tempted to just go for it with the century, and knowingly die in the end, but it really really would not be fun, and not be good for my health. So...next year TUC, I'm there....I'll have to pick out a century or two later this summer to do when I get get my butt in to gear, and when life slows down a bit, (hmmm, does that happen?)
Riding makes me happy. I'm not totally sure why, but it just does. It feels good, during and after. Something about the wind in your face, being outside, and being STRONG!
Whoever invented the bicycle deserves the thanks of humanity.
