I ride for the freedom of the road. Carrying your food and shelter, you feel each rise and curve. Traveling along at 10mph you meet people and see places in a way that allows you to become human again.
Riding a bike….be it for pleasure or exercise enhances our quality of life in every way… making us healthier and happier, for me is an on going love affair – that has nothing but good returns.
When I consider the reasons “why I ride”, various thoughts come to mind; exercise, enjoyment, and being ecologically responsible. However, when I saw this handicapped parking sign it occurred to me that I should be thankful for just being mobile. I’m also inspired by those who, despite mobility limiting illnesses or injuries, have overcome their limitations and participate in self-propelled activities.
I ride because it improves the quality of my life and to see whats over the next hill.
Riding makes me happy and takes me places I wouldn’t normally go. Riding lets me take it all in along the way. I ride because it’s better.
Through riding we get to be part of the setting (including Yosemite).
