There are a lot of reasons to ride your bike. Your doctor might say, “hey, chubby get out there and drop some pounds”. Your spouse might say, “hey, grumpy get out there and come back with a smile.” Your friends might say, “hey, it’s like being a kid again. Try it.” Off you go.
One day, nobody says anything. You suit up to suit yourself. The sky is blue, shining on your shoulders. The wind sings away any blues in your soul.
Cyclists eventually come across other kindred souls and bond, and that’s what keeps us healthy, happy and young.
