Let your nose be your cycling guide

Today it was about 5 degrees celsius and I was sucking in lots of cold air with just a hin of pole cat road kill.  I say this fact with a bit of sarcasm but I sometimes like this smell.   the fact that when I ride my sense of smell gets an extra treat of being in use and a primary sensory experience on my bike is fascinating.

In a car you do not experience the sense of smelling your environment as you pass through it.  On a bike you smell everything from distant BBQ smoking in a backyard grill to pies baking or beacon frying in a farm house kitchen on a cold morning.  Today even the road kill was refreshing.
