Monday Mornings and Dead things

In my neighborhood, monday morning is Garbage pickup, which means when i go out for my monday morning ride, i hold my breath and pedal as fast as i can until i am out of the neighborhood.One of the joys of riding a bike is the constant, communion with nature. You are so much more aware of your surroundings on a bike than when you zoom passed something in a car.
For instance, when you are riding a bike and enjoying the beautiful scenery, and then you smell the unmistakable stench of something that has died and has been rotting in the hot sun for a few days. You just can't get that in a car.

you can ride past something a whole heck of a lot faster than you can run past.
