How does riding a bicycle make you feel?
For me, bicycling has always meant FREEDOM. During my childhood my bicycle allowed me to get from our home in the country into the city. When we moved from the country to the city; it gave me a mode of transportation that was far faster than walking. Today, like the video below says, it lets me smell the rain. I notice things I wouldn’t from the driver’s seat of a car and it still means FREEDOM.
I encourage you to get out today or tomorrow, just get out and ride! Experience the crisp fall air, let the wind mess up your hair, create some CO2 for the plants and if the notion takes you…yell with all your might as you crest the top of the hill…FREEDOM!
Then come back here and tell us: How does riding a bicycle make you feel?
