The snow’s melted, mud’s (relatively) dried, temps are warm (45 degrees this morning!) and daylight comes earlier…all factors that led me to come out from hibernation and go for my first bike ride in spring 2021.
I only went a little over 6 miles but that’s good enough to begin the conditioning needed before I tackle a ride to Jim Thorpe, Glen Onoko or beyond.
Buds push through the tops of the trees, the feel and smell of fresh, crisp air and the sounds of the gushing river and birds singing loudly reward me for giving myself the time to enjoy the early-spring morning.
Enjoying the gifts of spring will be short-lived as the days slip by so quickly. Best use of this gift is to fully be aware of all the sights, sounds and smells occurring in the present moment as those moments create our lives.
How will you enjoy your gift of spring?
