That's exactly why I do it too. Nothing to be concerned with out there exept for the ride itself. It's a nice break from whatever crap is going on in life.KenB said:It's just me and the bike. Nothing else really matters or exists beyond the next 20 yards of road.

I hear you...I never get so lost in anything as when I'm sitting outside playing my guitar. Cycling/running do it for me too, but not to the extent that music does.Route 66 Domestiques said:"When I am on my bicycle, the world is breaking someone else's heart."
However, bicycling remains only two dimensional no matter how often the endorfins kick in. Flying my airplane is three dimensional no matter how many hot air balloons and parachutists I have to dodge (or vice versa).
And, I have to go outdoors and dodge traffic on my bicycle; and, I have to go to the airport of fly the plane; but, I can walk across the den in the house, pick up the saxophone, and get lost in everything from Rodgers & Hart to Beethoven.
My bicycle; my airplane; my saxophone: I need all three.
