Monday Motivation: #unlearnpavement

Crossing the highway to get away from pavement.

Last week we published our second Riding Gravel Radio Ranch, (listen to it here if you haven’t yet), and in that podcast, Bobby Wintle, our guest, talked about “unlearning“. I was reminded of his thoughts while out on my ride Sunday as I pulled up to cross this busy, four lane U.S. Highway. I saw all the people speeding along in their little cocoons and heard all the noise from the tires and engines. Dead ahead I saw the climb on Mount Vernon Road and the calm and peace beyond that hill on the horizon. I know which road I’m choosing!
