I thought the idea of riding was to clear your head?

I typically find that my time on the bike is almost like meditation. I can only really focus on the one task, staying upright. Processing the terrain as fast as I can. But, if I have a lot going on in my life or my stress level is higher than usual, then I find I struggle to focus. I still feel better after getting out for a ride reguardless though.

I still love to ride, but not being able to stay focused is a real problem.

Don'tcha all find it so cute that he worries about getting us our toys and goodies so much that he can't ride straight! Thanks Rod!
