Most college student's have a lot of pride in closing out a bar, and the good college students will be equally proud of closing out the library. I did that last night, and crushed some research, so when I awoke to a blaring sun and clear blue sky, it was obvious that I had to make some room in my schedule to ride. What a joy it was, surrounded by mountains, fresh air, soaking in the speed and effort. The joy that cycling brings is pure, because it comes as a result from your own efforts. The adventure may have been short, but my brief study break was a great reminder that adventure is everywhere, we just have to take advantage of the circumstances.
