THE JOY OF MY BIKE

THE JOY OF MY BIKE

THE JOY OF MY BIKE

I know that there are a lot of people who get their exercise walking and jogging. I hear that you can hit a transition point and after that, it gets easier. Some tell me that they feel exhilarated after their outing. For me, I get bored being a pedestrian. Simply put, it’s just too slow. I’m a tourist when it comes to my outings. I want to see what people are doing. I want to appreciate a unique home. I always try to route my outings through William Land Park. However, I don’t want to take a lot of time between scenes. My preference is my trusty bike. I can enjoy a little breeze, no matter what the weather. I can speed by the less interesting scenes and stop at the really cool stuff. I can stop and talk to people…no muscles will cramp up. My feet aren’t exactly user friendly and biking doesn’t make them hurt. Now granted, I don’t really bike just for exercise. I always need a destination. With saddlebags on my bike, I can run errands galore. I can buy a week’s worth of dinners and load it up in my bike. I can buy paint for my house, flowers for my garden or office supplies…and bring them home on my bike. The exercise is really a nice side benefit. Of course, there is always the benefit of saving money on gas, but really, I have to admit…it’s the last reason I ride my bike. I write this in the hope that more people will pause, just for a second, when they are heading out...
