As I was cycling yesterday, I began thinking about my life and how’s it has evolved within only a few years; the birth of my 2 sons, purchasing our first home, and starting a new career.  The years of no responsibility and all the free time in the world to bike are long-gone; work, yard work, meetings, kids’ events, being a husband and father are certainly not negatives but privileges that I should cherish now as they won’t last forever.  These are what make cycling special for me.  The invaluable time spent on my bike, rhythmically pedaling uphill makes my busy life a bit more special.
