I have realized something over the last few weeks: my writing is directly related to my riding. Even in areas that have little or nothing to do with bikes, my creative juices flow slower when I am not on the bike regularly.
And I am not surprised at all. Quite simply, my mind works better when I ride.
And as my riding as tapered off recently, so has my creative ability. Such as it ever was. However, I am excited to both start riding and writing more often. And I am especially excited to see the improvments in both my creative and physical energy.
History has proven that as I write, and ride, everything seems better in the world.
