This Day, I Rode

leave a comment »

This day, I slowly rode my bike to work,
Gliding across the gentle road,
Like a surfer on that glassy face,
Free from the weight of a crushing world,
This Day, the secret is mine, I know myself.

~~
This morning I felt the soft rays of the late winter sun and thought back to my playful and sun-filled days as a child in San Diego. My heart was warm.

I heard the morning songs of unseen birds.  I remembered that the world wants nothing more from me than it wants from the birds.  Just be and sing your song.  My purpose was clear.

I said hello to a dozen people and stopped to visit an old golden retriever who was laying in the morning frost. I was deeply connected.

I smiled the whole way, and I arrived to work as the happiest SOB in the building, maybe even in the entire city….

This is why I ride!

I’m not really sure why it’s notable when celebrities ride bikes, but it is.  Anyway, here’s a little post about Beyonce keeping it low key on her bike.  Awe hell, I’m for anything at draws attention to cycling.  Maybe Beyonce will help to influence more younger urban women to start cycling.

Beyonce is able to enjoy her free time and keep a low profile by cycling, the singer has confessed.

When Knowles isn’t promoting her music, she enjoys going for bike rides, as she explains: “I started riding a bike on my days off with others like my assistant and stylist.”

“It’s amazing how I’m able to ride around on a bike. People kind of see it’s me but since I’m on a bike, they think, ‘No, it’s not her.’ And by the time they realize it’s me, I’m already gone.”

“It’s great to do something normal every day. It keeps me grounded.”
