exhalations

It was a beautiful day for a 10 mile ride to the government center for a trails focus group meeting. When asked if I really did ride all the way from Reston I thought how odd to be feeling like I'm defending my decision to be outside riding a bicycle on a cool, crystal clear spring day. There were very few people riding on the trail at 8:00 a.m. which seemed a little odd. In a way I like the idea that bicycle commuting is perceived to be such a strange activity because I usually prefer to be doing the opposite of what most people consider to be normal. But on the other hand, it is so sad that so few people get to enjoy the benefits of cycling in such an ideal climate as we have here in Northern Virginia. Whenever I think of moving I realize the many things I like about this place, most of all the mild climate.
