My 16 year old daughter recently got her license and so lately it's been easiest to just have her take the car and have me ride my bike to work and around town. I live about 3.5 miles from my office and the town in which I work is small so it's not hard to get around. This has been a great way to get my miles in each week, and a great way to connect with my town a little better. What I mean is that on a bike you can smell and feel a place a little better than in a car and as a Pastor this has really been helping me connect with life in this area and pray.
The down sides are that I can't carry much with me, I can't always dress the way I need to, and the weather creates problems at times. But these things are easy to get around with a little forethought, planning, and teamwork so it's working out okay.
Hope you have a great day!
