I'm pretty sure I haven't blogged about this yet, but since biking around at Cedar in the summer/spring/fall, I've decided that this form of physical exercise is very enjoyable to me, mostly for the following reasons:
  • Cycling is much better for the knees and my metalrod scoliotic back than running
  • Since I shouldn't really be running but still like being cooled by speed, walking isn't enough but biking is way better
  • You can go farther biking and feel more accomplishment. A long ride for me right now is 20 miles
  • It smells so good to be outside (unless allergies drive you inside, I really have a hard time understanding why people choose the gym)
  • Even when it's hot out, if you're biking it feels cooler!
  • As a form of transportation it's much cheaper than driving, especially around town. Problem is nighttime...
And now the local fresh strawberries call. More later!

Check that...a long ride is now officially 40 miles!
I'll get to that Kal-Haven trail yet. Figuring out how to put sleepgear on the bike might prove to be interesting though...
