I love to ride by myself. Not having to worry about anyone else affords me the opportunity to go wherever I want, travel at any speed I want, eat when I want, go home when I want… Sounds pretty selfish doesn’t it? Yeah I guess it is, but I do enjoy those times alone with my face in the wind.

Still… there is something special about riding with a group of people. About 4 years ago I started a riding group that rides every month and tonight was one of our scheduled rides. 16 of us made our way through the backroads of Middle Tennessee and ended up at the local pizza joint for some awesome hang time. It was a great night!

  1. Well, stated Swag! And…it does not sound selfish at all. I put a somewhat similar post up last night – “Biking as Therapy”

  2. Yours is a common feel, my friend. Solitude is good for the soul….but, friends are good to have around when ya need ’em. Maybe its “everything in moderation”?

  3. Swag- here here.. I agree there is nothing more enjoyable than riding alone and smelling the flowers, eating when and where you want and taking pictures when ever you feel like it. I do also enjoy the company of friends and sharing the ride as well from time to time.

    Enjoy the ride ~
