Thoughts While Riding My Bike*

Ooh – it’s very pleasant this evening – wind blowing through my hair – nice!

Hey it’s the kid who usually races me, but he’s ignoring me. Was it something I said?

Ooh pretty flowers!

Why do I never remember to bring the camera?

What are all these cars doing around? Shouldn't everyone be home now?

Actually, it’s a little humid out here now.

Whee!

Hey lady on your cell phone! Slow the heck down – there are kids (& me!) playing in this neighborhood!

Hey Ruth!

Ugh I hate this hill.

You know – frankly I’m pretty sweaty now.

OK, time to race up the driveway for my big finish!

Oof – my brake works really well. I’m gonna go flying over the handlebars one of these days!



*Did you think I would be having profound thoughts? Not this present moment person!

  1. Maybe tomorrow will be a profound thought day.

  2. I love this... I need to do it while I'm running - but it may have a few bleeps if I did that...

    My favorite - WHEEE!!! :)

    1. Yeah - I had to censor myself some- ha!

      The Whee! was going down the hill I had to come back up later :)

  3. Who needs profundity? (Is that a word?)

    I could do this on my walk, but I don't think anyone wants to hear me saying, "I need to clean the litterbox", or "what did I just step in?"

    1. Yeah I think about house stuff too - but I try to shift that stuff aside & be in the moment when I'm on the bike.

  4. You can turn random thoughts into poetry in an instant! I loved it.

    1. Aw thanks! It was funny - I was trying to think "poetically" when I started my ride last night but I gave up pretty quickly :)

  5. Quite similar to what I think on my walks, maybe a bit less of the "wheee" and more of "I hope I get back before this dark cloud comes my way." On the treadmill, I plug in my iPod, otherwise it would get too boring.

    1. I keep thinking about listening to my audio book while I'm riding, but that would be a BAD idea - I can barely hear the cars that want to pass me as it is!

  6. Good for you. What are you up to now -- couple of miles? Good that you're being consistent!

  7. Sounds like fun. I think some of us forget how much fun and what a sense of freedom riding a bike can give you. Enjoy!
