This place is amazing. 🤩🚴🏼♀️💕 I am never leaving. Can’t wait to get on the bike 👉🏻 We are staying 3/4 up Huez so every ride must finish with climbing at least 16 of the switchbacks. My body needs this. My soul needs this. I’m so very happy to be here. 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷 #nevergoinghome#huez#cyclingadventures
“People like to travel: that is why the grass is greener over the fence. We are walkers – our natural means of travel is to put one foot in front of the other. The bicycle seduces our basic nature by making walking exciting. It lets us take 10-foot strides at 160 paces a minute. That’s 20 miles an hour, instead of 4 or 5… It is not only how fast you go – cars are faster and jet planes faster still. But jet-plane travel is frustrating boredom – at least the car gives the pictorial illusion of travel. Cycling does it all – you have the complete satisfaction of arriving because your mind has chosen the path and steered you over it; your eyes have seen it; your muscles have felt it; your breathing, circulatory and digestive systems have all done their natural functions better than ever, and every part of your being knows you have traveled and arrived.”
