Cycling trip to Lower and Upper Peirce Reservoir parks

When you bring your body out into the landscape you are bringing your body home to where it belongs. Because with all due respect, human bodies really weren’t made for offices, for streets and corners and tight places. ~John O’Donohue

I am glad to have the opportunity to visit the two reservoirs again as they are quite far from my home and having a bicycle has made it easier for me to travel here in about an hour, whereas it would probably take at least two hours if I were to walk and jog all the way to the Upper Reservoir park, which I used to do a number of years ago. I found the nature scenery simply breathtaking, and it felt inspiring to be far away from the buildings, streets and other aspects of the modern cityscape – it is like feeling connected to a much larger space beyond my known world that has been largely confined to the urban areas, and also to an undefinable sense of time, or rather, a sense of timelessness, as the above quote by John O’Donohue may have also alluded to.
