Bicycling Into The Valley of The Gods With A Spirit of Adventure

141

A million pedal strokes etch memories into the muscles in my legs with a single purpose: to power the crank and move the bicycle forward. Food flows into my body, bringing it power and strength. Water drenches my cells with liquid life. Sweat cools my skin while it circulates back into the air.

It is no longer a question of struggle. Now the journey evolves into the spiritual realm – where the pedaling becomes instinctive and a flight of fancy. The Great Spirit expresses through me and I express through it. I ride with universal energy pulsing through my being. I take flight without ever leaving the ground. A free-flow of energy radiates through my body and willingly expresses itself in the flight of the pedals.
