Bicycle Inspiration & Mantras

24 March, 2014


"When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations:  bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on.  This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead.  I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity.  But I am mentally far away from civilization.  The world is breaking someone else's heart. "

Diane Ackerman

Do you have daily mantras while riding your bike? When I read this quote I thought about my daily mantras that I practice and remember what it felt like riding my bike feeling these exact sensations. It's the perfect way to start the day, let alone, the week.
