The road to 40 – Is freedom a solo thing?

June 23, 2009

Sometimes I ride my bike to be alone.   To think.  To escape.   Recently, I wrote about riding = freedom.   It’s true.  It does mean that to me.  Few things compare to the freedom enjoyed while riding solo in a beautiful and challenging environment.

That said, freedom isn’t always a solo thing.   Sometimes freedom is best enjoyed with others.

For much of the year I’ve had solo affairs on the mind.   After a bit of personal time I’m working to regroup and get re motivated.   So….I invited my friends to have breakfast on the river.  A little early morning ride to see the sunrise, a little breakfast and then a nice ride to work.  All with a few friends.

I’m sure I’ll have photos and stories tomorrow.   Until then……

    Yeah, I hear ya. Much of the time I end up riding solo. It just works out that way. However; the rides with other folks are greatly cherished. Great experiences and time with friends is a rare commodity in today’s fast paced culture.

    I wish you well and a great ride.

    I ride solo everyday to work. Run solo too. But like GT said- when I do get out with friends….it is amazing and cherished. It’s like all the solo stuff is just training for the fun stuff with friends 😀
