Sunshine Makes All the Difference

Sleep deprivation aside, I forced myself to get out for a 12 mile ride yesterday afternoon.  The weather was colder and windier than it had been earlier in the week, but for some reason the trails were calling even louder.  As I was humping it up a ridge-line doubletrack climb, a realization hit me: sunshine makes all the difference.  Despite the colder temperatures and howling wind, the sunshine makes the world seem more pleasant and inviting, as if all will be well. 

There's something to be said for good 'ole Vitamin D.

I cranked through my 12 miler pretty quickly. . . I impressed myself.  As always, it was just such a satisfying and relaxing feeling to be sweating and grunting away at the pedals.  

Ah, mountain biking.
