The first launch out of my driveway in the morning is always such a pleasure. I roll the bicycle down my porch steps and walk it down to the end of the driveway. After making sure all my stuff is in place, I slide onto the saddle and start rolling. The slope of the driveway accelerates me gently into the street - and I smile. I can't help it, I always smile. It's such a wonderful feeling, like the little rush you get at the top of a ferris wheel. And after that, there may be hills and traffic, but I started the day with a smile.
