Dirt Is Good (Friday Ride)

The hum of the knobby tires on the hardpacked earth.  The heightened sense of awareness brought on by endorphins released during intense exersion.  The rush of the descent. Satisfaction of cleanly navigating a tricky section of trail.  The churning crank and the searing burn on a long climb.  Being in nature, no concrete no cars no buildings no phones.  All the trappings of modern civilization gone except for one machine of steel and aluminum and rubber.
