Just Like You Imagined

This entry is part 2 of 20 in the series Cross Country Trip

I had “Just Like You Imagined” by NIN looping, over and over, for an hour as I climbed and fell through the roads in Utah. I get chills and a boost of adrenaline when I listed to it now. Colorado’s roads were far more difficult to ride through, but Utah’s sweeping curves and steep inclines and downgrades made up one of the most exciting roads I’ve ever ridden. The rising and falling action of this song was in sync with the road. The rhythmic drums would warm me up through a long and steep straight away, and then the road would bend at the will of that electronic screech that rang out and I could do nothing to control the twist of my wrist.

It felt like this.
