I just need to wake up in the morning and hear traffic, people hooting, sirens, alarms. I drop my kid off at school and see people not actually helping each other anymore, some disregard the rules of the road completely, nobody looking out for each other anymore etc etc. When I take the bike into the mountains there's is none of that, riders greet each other, warn each other of possible danger's ahead, assist each other during rides. There's no hooting, there's no road rage, the noice in the mountains is music to my ears and the fresh crisp air in the mornings fills your chest and energise you. The views you appreciate from the top and even the little things you see along the way. I don't ride on tar and I will never do it as I don't find any fun in it but this is why I ride a bicycle now. To me it also keeps my aggression and violent side in place. I ride until I can hardly see mine anymore. Was very strange the first time it happened [emoji1787].
