0285 – Bicycle inside of Cog

Predawn ride, I pass my neighbor on a run. “Why are you riding a bike?” he asks. “Running gets you in shape faster.” It’s not about that. It’s about how riding makes me feel. The speed. Leaning into gentle curves. Charging up hills. How strong my legs feel. Riding gets me fit. But that’s just luck. I don’t ride to get fit.
