Friendship is a Used Bicycle

“’You should get a bike. It will change your life,” my friend Nick said. “I heard this over and over again like a nagging brake pad rubbing on the one wobbly spot on a dented wheel,” writes Colorado-based writer Brendan Leonard.

Leonard wasn’t a believer until his friend showed up his doorstep with a gift–a 1989 red Trek bicycle. As he began riding, Leonard found his life falling into the smooth order of a finely tuned bike. To find a center, some people practice Yoga. Others meditate.  All Leonard needs is a dark road and no particular destination. As he says, “There is rhythm and with the rhythm comes a clear line of thought.”
