Wow this is what it is all about...

So I just get home from a night out around 9:45, and I'm on my front porch in my hammock, and in the distance I can hear some live music playing, and I remember the city is having that fest for the 4th weekend. So I think I'll go check it out.

Well up to this point a few beers have been enjoyed, I was still totally cool to drive, but think that the police will be on high alert since it is a holiday weekend, so I decide not to chance driving.

So I grab my bike... Why not, I got a light on it? I think, it's not that dark on the way, plenty of street lights. I should be ok, as long as I'm careful. I only rode about 2 miles, but kept up a 15.7 mph pace which I think is respectable considering it's night, I'm on a trail bike with fat soft tires, and It has been about 2 months since I rode, (I dislocated my shoulder playing football), so I've been out of the saddle for a while.

On the ride there, it hit me again just like it did the first time. I forgot how much fun it is just to get on a bike and ride. The speed, quick turns, the wind, and even the climbs. Wow! This is what it is all about!

I hear ya brother... In fact, i just came in from riding 15 miles (it's 11:30 pm as i write)... My work and family commitments make riding during the daytime a say nothing of the brutal Georgia heat!

night riding on trails...just me, my bike and the critters... life is good!

Yes, the bike is so much more enjoyable.

Kudos for not driving but keep in mind the cops don't distinguish a DUI between biking and driving (at least not in my state).....not trying to be downer, you made a good decision and had fun to boot. Driving a bike instead of a 4000lb vehicle makes you virtually a non factor as far as being dangerous to others, too bad the law is so blind they don't care.....Just playing the reality game (booooo!) :thumbsup:

:Sermon over: bike riding is fun!
