First Spring Bike Ride


Today was the perfect day to bring the bike up from the basement and ride to the gym. Blue skies and sunshine, temps in the low 70s, light breeze.  I started a poem last summer when I bought my new 15-speeder…This excerpt seems fitting today:

By Vicki L. Flaherty, 5/6/13

I put my feet on the pedals.
I gather my energy.
I begin to move gently forward.
My legs are strong.
My body is balanced.
I float down the path.
Flowing and free.

I coast the down hills.
The breeze graces my skin.
I feel very, very alive.
I sail past the parks and people,
and all the every day things.
I could go like this forever,
joy filling my soul.
