Almost like meditation

After a 5 week break from mountain biking, I met my friend in the Vienna forest for a bike ride. The yellow leaves on the trees were shimmering in the sunlight while many of them already covered the ground.
We decided to go to one of our favorite places on top of the mountain. Going uphill was challenging, due to the break I had had and so I was not able to enjoy the beauty of the season.

Watching her, I did not want to pass her, and all of a sudden the awareness of going uphill had vanished completely.

Our steady movements in the midst of all this beauty were almost like meditation.
After a while she turned off and again, I continued along by myself.
The magical  moment had passed.
