"The laws of Voodling are subject to the more general laws of habit. Habit is a compromise effected between the individual and his environment, or between the individual and his own organic eccentricities, the guarantee of a dull inviolability, the lightning-conductor of his existence. Breathing is habit. Life is habit. Or rather life is a succession of habits, since the individual is a succession of individuals; the world being a projection of the individual’s consciousness, the pact must be continually renewed, the letter of safe-conduct brought up to date. The Voodling of the world did not take place once and for all time, but takes place every day."

Habits can appear to be quite extravagant while at the same time remaining just what they are: almost quotidian pathways to be trotted. Nevertheless, Sam Renseiw consciously realises the magnificence of the view(s) every time anew, with awe and humility. Sometimes an urban bicycle trip unfolds like a fairy tale. And worth to remember, as stable conditions of departure and return suddenly might mutate to more bleak settings. View the condensed randonee pedale by clicking here or on the links above.
