Two Wheels (rule the world)

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Inspired by some enjoyable chat with a friend about bikes and gear this morning, I headed out of the house around lunchtime to get Suzi out of the garage.

A quick tour and run that was what my mind was looking for. Regardless what others say, think or do … running on a bike rules the world. Two wheels, enough power and a pleasant surrounding does free your head whatever happend first.

It is the pure fun driving, the smooth running engine, the elements around and this tiny little bit of risk and therefore adrenaline what makes the difference of course. Not sitting in an air conditions car instead …. feeling the sun in your neck, the cold wind on top of a summit or plainly the wind blowing up in front of you what does make it special and different … for me.

Anyway having planned to see a friend later I just was planning a quick tour and decided to run light without maps, rain gear and stuff. Since a while maps are only just decoration on top of the tank rucksack anymore and when checking the weather it didn’t looks like rain.

It didn’t ….. Ok, I made it up already to 160km just cruising a few of my favorite tracks around when I spotted a dark and ugly rain cloud lurking for me. Being close to some of my favorite spots, I decided to head in for coffee and ice. Sitting there … thx god for mobile internet … I’ve checked my emails and stuff … had to lines of a funny chat again … and decided to return when the cloud seems have lost interest in me.

Until home it was 50km more to run and having done 10km or so the cloud did trap me from the back. A sweet splash and I had found some dry retreat under a bridge …. bad tonques blaming me ending up under a bridge sooner or later anyway. 😐

Thanks god it needed just minutes to clear up and stop pooring again and I decided quickly about giving it a go trying to return home again. And luckily, it worked out …. last final 40km were even enough to dry me again.

Super quick drying service thats was ….. by he meaning of each word! LOL    You have a nice day as well 😉
