Bicycle riding has always provided me with a sense of calm, when life gets to be too much.
I loved pedaling as a kid when I started with my Big Wheel. There was just something about the wind in your hair and pedaling as fast as you could.
As my life has progressed, I go to my bicycle to seek solace and mental therapy. Bicycle riding has gotten me through knee surgeries, relationship break-ups, and cancer.
Any bicycle rider will tell you that they ride for a reason that is beyond physical.
