Well being from the Southit means wearingstretchypantsfor a monthstraight andeatinglike thereis no tomonow.Thenlaying aroundon the floor in front of the t.v. until early eveningand start chowingagain. Unfortunately the weight doesn't comeoff asfast asin the past.That is why I'm thankfulthis Thanksgiving for my bike. It callsto me afterbig meals to go for a nde to losewhatI just put on. It encourages me to be a smarter andsaferrider. It teaches life'r;little lessons. Suchastherearealways obstacles out in front thatyoujust haveto bunnyhopover.Sometimes you canmakeit othertimesyou can't.The mostimportant thingmy bike allowsme to do is escape. Thereis nothingin these stressful times that cantakeawaythe pleasure of gettingon a trail for a few hoursof riding. WHAT A RELEASE! So in thisseason of thanks, takea moment andremember your bike. It is a true friend who will alwaysbe therefor you. No matter how manytimesyou crashor drop it. Eastboundanddown. Milo
