~ On Two Wheels ~
This will come as no surprise to you, my readers, but I really dig riding my bicycle. Sure, you need so much more gear and stuff to ride safely as opposed to lacing up and going for a run, but the rewards are plentiful.
I absolutely love doing my errands on my bike. What better way is there to get things done PLUS get exercise PLUS get fresh air PLUS have fun. I really enjoy the fact that I use my car way less than I used to. Plus, when your injured and simply can’t run the bicycle is a beautiful alternative. For me, never as great of a cardio workout but great in every other way possible.
I mostly ride solo, but on those rare occasions when I find myself riding with a group of friends it is sheer heaven. It’s amazing how much you can discover on a bike ride. How much you can take in and really observe. Lots of thinking and concentration too. Must follow the rules of the road. Let’s face it, I am savvy. So, that translates over to how I ride my bike. SAVVY. “Well-informed, perceptive, or shrewd”
Lately, I’ve been a bit (how shall I say) stressed. So, I take it out on my bicycle. I carpe the shit out of my bike!!! Or I kick it. Don’t worry, it doesn’t usually kick me back.
Anyway, so taking a page from Scott, I am going to try to blog every single day of the month of ROCKTOBER. Wish me luck.
Words are only the shadows of thoughts.
