Google is great. Assuming that something exists on the Internet and isn't password protected, Google will find it for you. Although if you are not specific enough, Google may find a lot of things for you, things you don’t need. We are used to scrolling through hundreds of results and just picking and choosing what we want. We are over stimulated. We think we just need the highlight reels without placing any of it in context. Who cares who won the game? Did you see the ridiculous, crushing hit in the 2nd quarter? We want spectacular highlights without context.
This is why I love mountain biking. It’s hard to not take a ride in context. One section of the trail may be your favorite, but you usually can’t get there without riding the rest of the trail. In fact trails often get better as they collect context. You may end up liking a section of trail because although it tried to kill you at some point, you can now clean it with the greatest of ease. There are not the words for a ride on a familiar favorite trail on a perfect day with great friends. On a ride by yourself, a familiar trail can be the difference between loneliness and solitude.
