Ride High….as high as the Mountains

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” – Edward Abbey.

What, you may ask, does it take to change one’s life? Hard-work? Or, is it love? Or, maybe health? None, I say. It is the mountains. Mountains change your perspective like no other. You own the world, the hour you spend riding. The experience is independent of Earth, mountains or the clouds, yet these elements are intricately woven into those moments of exhilaration. The short length of road in-sight ahead is typical of life and its ways. So are the sudden drops and gains. The terrain, and its impact on an individual. The company, and its effect on one’s motivation. It is life-in-a-nutshell. It changes your soul.  Completely. Are you ready for the change, yet?
