It’s easy to get consumed by all the bad news coming across our desktops these days: war, recession (depression?), global warming, peak oil, and on, and on. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, don’t forget to take the time to stop and smell the roses. And by all means, go on a bike ride just for the fun of it once in a while, without the pressure of logging miles, saving money, or “doing the right thing”. You’ll be amazed at what it does for your outlook—the bicycle is powerful medicine indeed.
