More than just the title of an obscure 1982 film, koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi word that translates as “life out of balance.” Does cycling keep me balanced, offering a vast and complex alternate reality where I am untroubled by mundane concerns, or does cycling now have a hold on me that is so firm I suffer withdrawal from it after even a short separation? Today was the first of what likely will be four consecutive days off the bike. A combination of bad weather and other obligations probably will mean no more miles until Friday evening. I can’t tell you how far away that feels.
