Life lessons from my bike
Papa Mike@ Bintan spinning away
For those who know me, I am not world tourer nor a long distance rider. Not by a long shot. The longest ride I did was the ride from Kluang to SG. Around 120km. The experience did scarred my bum some what and I couldn't bend my knee for almost a week after the ride(a knee condition -RCL). But strangely having done the ride with my friends, I felt good. People laughed/gasped at my "stupidity" to do it..... and I also think there is something wrong with my head. When I close my eyes, I could still see the slopes and KC's mantra- "The slopes are my friend!" Apparently, there is pleasure in pain and overcoming ur "limitation".... With this... I share with you a very nice story by a lady rider... enjoy!

I think back upon all my years of touring the world on bicycle and am amazed at all I’ve learned from my iron companion. But one experience I had on my bike – one bad decision I made – quite literally changed my life...."
