For a moment I thought that in heaven all bike trails slope gently downhill. But immediately I thought again. Downhills are great for recovery, for seeing the views as land slopes away in front of me and for the sheer thrill of speed. But uphills have their benefits, too. They lower my gaze to the beautiful flowers I miss at high speeds, they cause me to feel later on that I’ve actually had a workout and best of all, they allow me to eat pork ribs, chocolate, ice cream and the like. For that, I’ll take the uphills – and even better towing a stroller!

Amazing how God knew what He was doing when He designed this place.
