The Why Never Answered

Being on the street on my road bike (skinny tires, bike shorts, shaved legs and all), putting in the miles across the southland, was my place of meditation. Basic transportation now and then, too. A zen state achieved via sweat and balance, to say nothing of a little exhaustion.
