I am almost afraid to write this here on the blog. I fear public ridicule. Honestly, it feels a little bit like a confessional, anxiety going into it and relief coming out of it.So here goes.
I HAVE NOT RIDDEN MY BIKE IN OVER A MONTH!
There I said it.
But, not all is lost. I’ve been spending time in the woods. Lots of it in fact. I have been prepping for something coming up that I will share here next month. But, even if that big thing wasn’t on the horizon for me, I don’t think I would have changed anything. I needed a break.
So what have I been up too? Walking in the woods with my mind and my camera. Sort of like Thoreau, I went to the woods to live diliberately. OK, maybe not live, but to think deliberately. I have found peace in the woods all around me and I wanted to share some of that peace with you today.
I’ll get back on the horse, I mean bike, in February. It’ll be time and I do miss it. I have a new fatbike as well! Until then, know I am out there, thinking and seeing clearly and taking pictures that make me happy.

Love the leaf against the snow. Always a favorite subject!
That one got me, too
Thanks Julia! That one is special for sure. I call it Be Still.
I took 5 weeks off the bike between Thanksgiving and Christmas—best thing I’ve done all year. Got back on and had one of the best, most fun road rides of my life.
Thanks for the comment Brian and I hope that is my experience too when I do go back!
