A Full Four Days of No Driving

This week I managed to ride my bike for four days straight and no car driving. I plan on riding tomorrow too, which would make it a five day streak. Plus, this month I have been able to ride and not drive at least 3-4 days a week since the 9th.

A Reason to Ride: Time for Reflection

You just crested the hill. Your legs are a bit tired, it takes a little bit to catch your breath, but the pounding of your heart makes you feel alive.
