Straight back for forward

00 76

 Mountain biking last summer in the southside of the Pyrenees
forward wasn’t in front of any more but backwards
the shortest path isn’t always the fastest.

…..

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see
(Winston Churchill)

…..

So many even very wise people are so busy running forward
that they do not notice that they run in a ring.

      The small path ended where I stood with my mountain bike – winter snow had closed the rest of the way with stones – Thanks for your words and for being first…🙂😉

      I know what you mean – feel the same way – sometimes we have to stop “so our bodies can catch up head” but it is also better than “stop so our head can catch up the body”…🙂🙂😉

    • I had to stop there the small tiny path ended where I stood with my mountain bike – the winter snow had closed the rest of the way with stones…🙂

      But a wonderful view…🙂

      I believe Winston Churchill was a wise man – along with Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln and Gandhi – mentioned these as the 4 biggest and perhaps only them with, real statesman qualities ever…🙂

      Thanks, it’s more easy up than down…🙂😉

      Agree “generally exhilarating, occasionally terrifying” are the right words both mountain areas – Sierra de la Demanda (which is part of the western section of the larger “Sistema Ibérico”) and the Pyrenees are as I remember – comparable with each other – but the Sierra de la Demanda is perhaps more varied and not so high as the highest of Pyrenees…🙂

      And so is the eminent wine region Rioja also sheltered by mountains at the “Inner Plateau” including the Sierra de la Demanda – Sierra de la Demanda are a little bit more easy mountain biking…🙂

      Yeah even if the winter snow hadn’t closed the rest of the path with stones – it would have been difficult on the mountain bike…🙂

      Likes the quotes too…🙂
