Thread: Jonesin' for singletrack...

    Jonesin' for singletrack...

    After getting all "worked up" thinking about the dumb Iraq war on another thread, I felt the need to let my mind wander to more peaceful endeavors....

    Singletrack and the Soul

    The sun rises
    On a beautiful and serene weekend morning
    The wind whispers gently
    As I stretch
    And pour my morning motivation
    One thought on my mind
    Singletrack
    Sweet, sweet singletrack
    Pulling into the trailhead parking lot
    My mind drifts to places only my soul can see
    Where only my bike can take me
    I hit the dirt, my spirit set free
    Gliding effortlessly
    Sailing sweetly
    Through trees
    And meadows and all that is good
    Mud, blood, and miles later
    I am transformed
    My mind clear, my body strong, my heart soaring
    To another place
    Where joy, pure unadulterated joy, becomes
    A way of life.
    Singletrack
    Sweet, sweet Singletrack

    Awesome pics! Where is that first one? It reminds me of Michigan riding - tight twisty singletrack through beautiful woods... I miss that around here.

    There's ALOT of variety up here to choose from - it's more like "where do I start?!" and there are a few wash rides that will be a challenge even to you

    Tsali area in western North Carolina - just a superb area to ride in general.

    Thanks

    Your poem captures the essence of what mountain biking is to me. It is refreshing and stimulating to the soul.

    Singletrack is the perfect counter to the mess of war and politics we have.

    peace
