Social, Long, Purposeful, Breathtaking, Speed, Sights, Sounds, Smells, Cool Wind. There is no way to describe a perfect ride, because so many of the rides I take are perfect. Regardless of destination.
I have 3 bikes currently. 1) 2007 Lemond Buenos Aires- This is my long distance/group ride/riding for fitness bike. 2) Surly Cross-Check- This is my Commuter. This is my Tourer. This is my around town bike. 3) 2011 New Belgium Fat Tire Ale Cruiser bike- This bike was the prize of a raffle in which I had the winning ticket. Since winning her, she's sat in a storage shed in Atlanta because the conditions were not ideal to bring her out. But now, she has found her calling. The Thursday Night 7th st Social ride that leaves from Bicycle Space weekly at 8pm. The speeds are slow, but this is one of the most enjoyable rides I have been on in a long time. Great people, great routes, great ride.
I wear a helmet any time there is a risk of having an accident on the bike (that means I've always got a helmet on). I am always willing to share my water to help my fellow riders complete their ride. And unless I'm on my Fat Tire Cruiser, I always have spare tube and air with me.

Riding bikes is my nirvana. Nothing brings leaves me feeling more complete than time on a bike.
