Welcome, ye enlightened few, to the Bretheren of the Bike.
Here, it matters not what and where you ride, but why. The Bretheren ride for freedom and vitality.

We Bretheren, we sage few, experience most or all these emotions every single time we ride.
Love may be lost, money spent, and time wasted. But, you'll forget it all, if only for while, when you grab your bike and just....
EMBRACE THE PAIN
