Eytan H. - Bradford, ON

We get to the hill at 8 am, I get my bike off the rack and lean it against my car. As I check out my bike to make sure nothing is loose, I start to day dream. I picture myself on the trail, and get deeper in thought. Images start flooding my head and I'm reminded of why I love to ride my bike and this particular hil. I've stopped playing golf because I love to ride, there's nothing like it. I love the trails and the quite forest. I love the rocks, the trees and the dirt. I love the wind that cools me on a fast decent, the way my legs feel on a long slow climb and the names on the trail signs. I love to fall on her hard ground because she reminds me I have no fear, love is truely blind. When your in love, you give with all your heart. Thanks God the hill will always be there because I'm in love. My riding partner snaps me out of my day dream and reminds me to lock the doors to the car. I have a look of euphoria an my face, Stu asks me, "if I have met some one?". "No one new." I reply. He gives me a strange look as we mount our bikes and get ready to go in. I tell myself as we enter, "Ravenshoe Park, I've been in love with her for quiet some time". Eytan H Ravenshoe Trail Park. Ontario, Canada
