On two wheels

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."
H. G. Wells
Your turn: Do you ride? Why?

I wish I still did...hurts my knees and back too much now. But I still have my spiffy recumbent in the garage, just in case...

OTOH, I do ride *a* bike, but I don't think you meant a motorcycle ;)

Ride? Oh, yes.

Every day. Twice a day. (I commute to and from work on my bike and do longer rides in the evenings/on the weekends.)

It's my favorite way to start the day... rolling along, little thermos full of espresso tucked away in the panniers... a stop on the riverbank to read the morning newspaper and wake up properly...

I ride for love of the wind in my face, I ride in the rain, smoke, snow, ice and sun... because I can.

I took up bicycling (again) to control my weight and get in shape. Now I ride mostly for fun and to see new things right around the corner that I've never seen from a car or motorcycle. I'm 52 but on the bike, it's like being a kid again!
