Those times out riding, convinced you’ve spied someone up ahead, only to realize upon approach that your eyes had been playing tricks. All along, you were chasing mailboxes.
The pursuit of something deeper. An optimistic belief that if you go out in the world, if you work out, read more, eat better, if you try and stretch yourself in some way, eventually you will find it. Your personal pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Chasing Mailboxes is a space to explore that something deeper I’m frequently trying to uncover. I write about dreams I thought I had that look different in reality, and unexpected sublime moments. Chasing Mailboxes helps me gain a better understanding of myself and my relationship with bicycling. And through writing, I gain perspective.
Randonneuring, bike touring, transportation cycling, and running, too. On two wheels in Washington, D.C.
Coffeeneuring and the Errandonnee
These challenges come to life through the blogging and Twitter community, and participants’ excellent guest posts.
