9/11 Ride

Did you go out for a ride on Patriot Day? You know, 9/11!
I did and I took that time to reflect back on the day that it all went down. I rode R. Avenue up to the Boone/Hamilton County line and sat on the top of a hill that overlooks a bit of Iowa that I'll wager few have seen from the seat of a bike. The wind was light, the sky was clear blue, and the grasses were waving at me as if to say, "Come on, ride over this way and see what there is to be seen." So I took the liberty of riding aimlessly. It made me remember that day and the feelings it produced back in 2001. If you're old enough to have a recollection of the day Kennedy was shot, then you already understand why people say you will never forget where you were when you found out. If you're not that old, you now have that same experience. Ride, smile, appreciate, repeat! Later!
