I Got A Bike!

I got a bike!

Something about riding a bike makes me feel like a kid. That wasn’t why I bought it. I bought it for more “practical” reasons – exercise, improve my balance, participate in the human race.

But an unanticipated outcome was the kid thing. It feels like you’re going so fast, like you’re flying. Like you can go forever.

Flashing back to how it felt that first time I rode a bike, back when I was a kid. I remember it was like being released from the tedium of being so firmly attached to the earth, the plodding feeling of one foot in front of the other.

Gravity didn’t exist. I was free.

I’m flying. It’s a mountain bike, but maybe I should get streamers for the handlebars.
