What was your best day on a bike? -- I was asked this question many a time as I'm sure all you other cyclists have been too, "What was your best day on a bike?" This got me thinking about what makes a best day.

Out to Sea -- It was one of those unbelievable experiences that just the memory of can erase the frustrations sometimes encountered in life.
