Editor’s Note: This is the inaugural JT Biker’s Blog article. They will appear about twice a month, or as our author experiences new adventures in the JT countryside that should be shared with you, our readers. Thanks for visiting!
As the grip of winter begins to loosen, a rebirth advances over the Northern hemisphere with the entrance of spring.
This is when the Earth rejuvenates with life, and so does the human spirit, towards outdoor adventure. There is no better way to free yourself from cabin fever than experiencing the world on two wheels.
The goals of each cyclist exiting the winter months are varied. Some look to a competitive race season, others look to be in better shape than their riding companions, while most cyclists want to achieve a comfort level on a bicycle more in tune with family fun & vacations.
Regardless the reason, a distinct freedom is afforded to the individual who is the cyclist. Detachment from the high tech, day to day, to interact with the natural world and get a little exercise defines the essence of the human spirit.
Whether you are crushing technical single track, spinning on your favorite country road, or hitting the rail trail on a family outing, keep your path bright and freedom will be found.
