Zen and the art of bicycling

Last post for now.

So with this in mind I am leaving shortly for the Gerryactive 2011 Cycle Tour of France. I really love this annual trip with my good friends John and Pete. It is so relaxing mentally ( occasionally tough physically as we cross mountain cols ) to be with two easy going lads just meandering through rural France on our bicycles with our tents and minimum gear. Free spirits. No news, no phone, no computer, no gadgets, no responsibilities. Our world will shrink and therefore become large. Back sometime.
