The mountain road provides an escape from the world. Its curves that wind through oak trees worn by time with branches that reach for sky and deep roots that soak up the scant rain. It is the solitude that focuses the mind on the body while putting aside the worries. It is the joy of pain from pedaling your bike and discovering the grind is faster than before.
it is escape from worries. Escape from stresses. Escape from life. A challenge for the body to overcome the elevation. A challenge for the mind to overcome mental worries. A challenge for the soul to strive improvement.
