Words and riding by Amanda Batty
People say they mountain bike for many different reasons. A few even ride for love of the sport. I mountain bike for myself. I ride because when I’m in the saddle, the world drops away & I find my rhythm. I ride because sometimes, the only thing that makes sense in the world is the connection of rubber to dirt & rock. I ride to find my truth, to find myself and to find peace. I ride for me.
