Took my bike for a trail ride along the Neuse River and decided it was photo op time. Wedged my Trek in the sand just enough for her to stand on her own and shot away. This is my favorite out of the bunch.
I took my “Lil’ Grape” out to Flanners Beach, NC. Short but very fast, fun, swoopy, single track loop. The views are always beautiful on this particular trail, as most of it has the view of the Neuse River.
I go lots of places on my bike. I go through the thickest of forests, and the wide open ranges near the beach and rivers… I see lots of beautiful things but this is by far the most beautiful view I have found above the Neuse River, in North Carolina on Cherry Point (MCAS).
My bff and a tree. Taking a break from mountain biking and taking a photo opp. ;)

No Road by Philip Larkin
Since we agreed to let the road between usFall to disuse,And bricked our gates up, planted trees to screen us,And turned all time’s eroding agents loose,Silence, and space, and strangers - our neglectHas not had much effect.Leaves drift unswept, perhaps; grass creeps unmown;No other change.So clear it stands, so little overgrown,Walking that way tonight would not seem strange,And still would be followed. A little longer,And time would be the stronger,Drafting a world where no such road will runFrom you to me;To watch that world come up like a cold sun,Rewarding others, is my liberty.Not to prevent it is my will’s fulfillment.Willing it, my ailment.
