There is something about biking in itself that sort of puts you in the zone. I never take music with me, so I'm left alone to my thoughts and surroundings. The trail near my house is never busy (not even with the homeless).
I always see animals when I go out by myself. Last time, I rode along side of a fox and saw a bunny. There's the occasional scare when a scare runs out or bird flies across my path.
[via]The Rocky Branch Trail portion is one of my favorite parts. To the right is sprawling green fields dotted with rustic, hand-made fences. There is even a picnic pavilion. D and I must make a priority to bike out to this area with our picnic basket sooner than later. There is never any people around this area. I'm going to make a habit of my solo bike rides on greenway.
On another random note, I'm dedicated June "drinking June."
