By now many people have gone through self-isolation for 14 days or many more. I hadn't; until now. Life, to be honest, is not that different - I work from home, and I don't do the shopping. But I do cycle.
I used to cycle every day to work, to visit friends, to go for coffee, or to the pub. Then over the weekend I would go mountain biking in trail centres and natural trails.
Recently I started organizing women social mtb rides. But not for the past month...
Now after 14 days without sitting on my bike saddle, I saw the world from my bike again - and it was good. It was better than good.
From the window of my bike, I saw a misty Autumn day:
the air - very still, foggy to be precise;
the ground - soft and creamy, just like chocolate mousse, slippery in brownish-yellow;
the smell - fresh, a fireplace in the distance;
the murmuring sea.
A world of sensations and sounds.
Two happy dogs jumping to a stream.
Friends chatting, laughing.
So many stimuli.
So much necessary.
