I start to pedal, anticipating the ride ahead. My mind is quiet. I chat on the climb, everything is normal and I have no anxiety or worry, I’m just happy to be out on my bike.

Not too good about writing about myself, but not so bad at writing about other things. There was a time that I hated bikes, but then they became my life.

Always trying my best and up for adventures.
