Will you? Will you join me on this journey?
Don’t even hesitate, I want YOU to come, YES YOU. It’s always better with company to enjoy all the beautiful sights. I am in awe of what’s all around us, every day, that we miss in our hurry. So, come, enjoy the ride. We won’t pedal too fast.
ON YOUR MARK– Click the link below. It will open a new window that will play my favorite bicycling song. It’s an oldie re-done, yeah it might take some getting used to (if you’re an old crank like me), but give it a go. Or just listen to your favorite song. Are you listening? Now move down in the post.
GET SET-Grab your bike and water.
GO-Off we go into the beautiful beyond.
God’s beauty shining as the sun sets.
We pass Sunflowers growing on the side of the road. Their natural beauty even more astounding since they grow voluntary.
A field of them. Life abundant , how it overflows.
Then we see a creature, busy in his quest, searching for food or water. Uninhibited by our intrusion, as we watch him shuffle along. We could almost reach out and touch him. How amazing!
Finally, the way home, a path to guide us. Beautiful trees of nature serve as a canopy. Puddles from recent rain to splash through. Twilight is approaching, as we whip through the trees, with the wind blowing on our face, and our strong legs pump for more. We have gone farther than we ever thought possible. Our body, our spirit, did not fail.
What a rush. A physical endurance. An inspiring view. A mental refreshment from the day’s cares. A welcoming of the night, a night of peaceful rest, and the comforting return to our home, happy and sated.
Head bowed, I thank God for this day.
Thank you for joining me. Let’s do it again very soon.
The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or good, but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage, and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected, as ready to say I do not know, if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality, to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid. I wish others to live their lives, too – up to their highest, fullest, and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I’ll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant – to radiate life.

Hello! That’s the sweetest invitation and a great, wonderful post. I’ll be honest, I’m enjoying grooving to Elton John at the moment, so I brought my own tunes, but I Thank You for the journey and beauty.
May All Beings Be Happy.
Thanks, Elton works perfectly! I don’t mind at all. I appreciate the company. 🙂
Wow what an awesome post. Guess what I’m getting a bike soon. We’re out of the triple digits in Arizona and my husband has decided to join me in hiking more and he has a bike so we’ll do that as well.
I love the name of yur blog and I’m here for the ride!
Awesome!! You will love it! Best hundred dollars I ever spent. Mountain views would be really nice. 🙂 Live, Love and Laugh, it’s the only way to be. I love your blog. I love that kind of attitude! Thank you for coming by!
I traveling here from Tess’ blog (which is awesome). What a wonderful post to read. I bike regularly. Especially from spring through fall, I commute to work by bike when I can. I have a wonderful bike trail out in the woods that is so peaceful, followed by country roads. Being out in the woods, especially in the early morning hours, is so connecting for me – connecting to my soul. There’s something about the stillness, the dew, the sun peaking over the horizon…that is so moving.
Tonight it’s so good to walk through this ride with you.
And I absolutely love the quote you have at the end. That was so good for me to read, and let soak in. To radiate life – how beautiful!
Lance, that’s it, a connecting, a stillness, so wonderful for our souls. Your country trails sound lovely. I miss the country sometimes. Thank you for your comment and thoughts! Great stuff 🙂
But are you sure we should ride together?? My bike is old and the brakes squeak.
(I love the sunflowers)
Ha Ha squeak away.. I got my tunes on. 🙂 Wait til it’s time to ride through the Texas Bluebonnets next spring.
Makes me want to go out and get a bike! Fabulous post Angelia!
Thank you, Peggy!
