Spin with the breezes tickling your face,
Warm meadows whispering hellos and goodbyes,
A shadow rider echoing your pace,
Behind waves the wind; ahead, welcome skies.

Spin with the ease of rambling young days,
Spoked wheels caressing the curves of the road,
Or rise in esteem of  lofty pathways,
Élan from the push lightening gravity's load.

Spin with your knees: pumping pistons of grace.
Gear up or gear down, using lithe-legged springs. 
With a two-haloed angel, it's freedom you chase,
As you glide through the valleys on handlebar wings.

*inspired by Barbara Gorelick "Your Favorite Form of Transportation" contest

    Scott , you deserve to win with an entry like this one. I honestly could think of no favorite way of traveling. So that is why I talked about many of them. Of all the exercise ones, Biking is indeed the least like an exercise. I loved it as a child on my Stingray bike I saved up for all summer to buy myself! Picked strawberries and babysat! WE would ride as a family for miles. But things change when you get older! Luv, Andrea
