Simple Pleasure with results!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I had forgotten the feeling of taking a joy ride! When I was young I used to ride for hours during the week around the neighborhood. At some point I became to busy to ride. My husband purchased a pair of bikes for my anniversary present in April. I have not been able to stay off the bike. I enjoy the exercise and calorie burn just about as much as the wind hitting my face. There is a feeling of strength topping a small incline. Excitement and fear going 15-20 miles per hour down a small valley. This is definitely my favorite form of exercise at the time. I am really enjoying those Sunday afternoon family rides as well.

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride. ~John F. Kennedy

Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving. ~Albert Einstein

Have a wonderful day!
