smallest ride


This summer, I’ve finally learned to a ride a bike, thanks to this guy. While this is just a bike, it’s also a vehicle that has opened my eyes to the smallest of wonders. 🚴🏼

I ride down these never before seen streets, all flourished in flowers and freshly cut grass, smile at passing strangers, and glimpse into the lives that I can only capture while pedaling at a steady heartbeat. Thanks to this bike, I get stopped by children, couples, and the elderly. I talk to construction workers and smile at girls that I wouldn’t have the guts to smile at otherwise. I’m impulsive, anxious, and at most times, closed in. When I’m riding this bike, it’s just me. I’m watching and breathing. And just like the wheels, I steadily move with the wind. ~
