Funny when nature flips the switch to SPRING. About 10k of vertical this week...some 8 hours in the saddle. On The Throne as I consider it. When the time to ride rolls around I wonder how I make it through the other months without the solo saddle time and the quiet and the focus and the daily devotional of somewhere between 2 and 4 hours of riding. It is my church. As much as my Son is, and my wife and out humble home of 23 years. These places are sacred if not for any other reason than I visit them through thick and thin. Sickness and health. Speed and Fatness. Forever, I worship at their altar to find some truth.
