"While we are looking for the antidote or the medicine to cure us, that is, the ‘new’, which can only be found by plunging deep into the Unknown, we have to go on exploring sex, books, and travel, although we know that they lead us to the abyss, which, as it happens, is the only place where the antidote can be found."

Until recently, most of my rides have been short, exploring the roads that I could ride in less than an hour from home and most corners I stop like this and figure out where to go next.  I now plan my rides on Strava and use Osmand to give me turn-by-turn directions.

I wanted a fixed gear commuter but she wanted something she could ride so we bought an old Miyata TripleCross that I converted to a 1x7.
Grocery basket + fenders maybe…
