Play the Pause

“One love. We get to share it. Leaves you, baby, if you don’t care for it.”
“One life, you got to do what you should.”

– “One”, U2

When I head out on a solo ride, I put the buds in and queue up a good playlist. But as I start off, I pause the playlist to listen to the bike to make sure everything is good.

This morning was my first ride on a fixie in about a year. I had forgotten how quiet of a ride that is. No freewheel purr. No rattle anywhere. All you hear is the rubber on the pavement.

I was a good five miles down the road before I realized the playlist was still paused.
