Riding in the desert

Riding here in the desert, a pair of tiny spinning wheels in the shadow of ancient monuments, I'm learning to ride again. I'm blessed to be riding with my best friend, a superb rider with a teacher's heart -- a true guide.

I'd forgotten how important it is to be a student of riding -- not to simply study cycling. Having a good teacher helps: someone who can show you how to ride better yes, but more importantly how to be a better rider.
