7 Things my Bike has Taught Me

I have cycled in one form or another pretty much all of my life.  Ever since I can remember I have always loved to do it.  I look forward to it just about daily.  There are many things I have learned from this life long two wheeled adventure.

Here is the short list.

  1.  Cycling allows me to immerse fully in nature and enjoy the simple things. The sun, wind, rain and the sensation of accelerating are all better while riding a bike.  Fresh air and wind in the face is pure ecstasy.
  2. The bike is exciting, it can take me to new places; help me meet new people and discover new landscapes.  I want to explore everything.  I want to enjoy all the little things in life, because someday I’m going to realize they were the big things.
  3. Cycling and learning new skills is exhilarating, but I can’t be afraid to look stupid.  I can’t get hung up on what others think.  It doesn’t matter how good I am, but how good I want to be.
  4. Cycling has taught me a very important lesson: when I fall down, I need to get right back up, brush myself off and continue on down the trail.
  5. Balance in life and in bike riding is key, without it I am surely headed for disaster.
  6. Sometimes I have to make my own fun.  I am usually one single bike ride away from a better mood.  It really is hard not to smile while riding a bicycle.
  7. Life can sometimes be an uphill climb, but the view is usually pretty awesome, if I stop and take the time to look around.
