Holy Ride

For some of us the bike is the religion. Others find religion on the bike, just as they’re cresting a mountain pass, or finishing a long ride. This Hindu holy man uses his bike for pilgrimages. He’s on his way to Vat Savitri Purnima festival in Allahabad, India.

The photo is haunting, like you’d see the holy man on a difficult day riding across the country. He’d hand a salty nut bar, sip of water, and say something like, “hold your line in the turns,” while a didgeridoo played.
