After 4-year recess, I am on the bike again. There are so many bike trails within a 30-40 minutes drive. The majority of the section is along the lake or the river, and some are under the canopy of the lofty and dense trees. A morning ride in the cool weather to kick off a day is wonderful.
Pandemic put me off many activities that I usually do. Volunteering to photograph at MS Bike in August is one thing I loved but have missed for a couple of years. Some registration fee for the participants to have fun and raise funds for MS patients is purposeful. Biking in the Oregon countryside is an utterly relaxing and rejuvenating experience. It’s the moment that you feel Nature is all yours and you are being pampered.
Pandemic seems not going away soon. Instead of stressing over it, I want to get back to old normal and be intimate with Nature again.
