Riding a Bike This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Julie K., Niceville, FL By JulieKate, Niceville, FL

I'm traveling faster than the speed of light.
Wind funnels through my two-sizes-
too-large shirt as I sail down the hill.
I'm bent low, my torso poised
over the handlebars,
trying to stay aerodynamic.

All around me, trees and cars and road
flash by,
but I don't notice.
I'm focused … trying to lose myself in the rhythm of the
chug, chug, chug my legs have
methodically fallen into as I push
pedal after pedal.
When I'm done, my body aches from tip
to toe,
and my butt is sore from sitting too long.
But I don't mind.

My love is too strong … let's ride again
tomorrow.
