A reminder that this coming weekend sees a change of style for Roaming Zen, with the inaugural bicycle version. I used to claim that I had had more zen moments on a bicycle than on a cushion; it is certainly an activity for me that necessitates strong mindfulness at all times, and an acceptance of whatever is happening at the moment, whether internally or externally.
Having settled on Angel Island, from two visits with other Zen Center residents on retreat days, it was gratifying to see it featured at the top of a recent list of great bicycle outings on SFist. If you want more details of the day, please see the Eventbrite page.
It is not completely flat, but the car-free roads are still a delight
Amazing views from the south side of the island
One of my favourite pictures, regardless of location
