One of my favorite moments of any bike trip comes when I'm not on my bike. It is that time after a long day's ride. The tent is set up. The sun is getting low in the sky. There is nothing to do but observe the beauty around me and listen to the world as it winds down.
I've heard it said, "If you listen closely ... you just might hear your priorities."
Total bicycle and travel bliss.
