A very short bike ride.

“Freedom is riding a bicycle” The last time I had been on a bike I was making the final pedal strokes into Tbilisi, Georgia, weary after a 5,155 mile journey across Europe. I’ve been home for six weeks since, and haven’t so much as glanced at bike. Yesterday, I decided to ride home from work. […]
