The Simple Joy of a Bike

Back when I was a young teenager in the 1970's I got around town on my trusty 10 speed bicycle. I never thought much about the process of riding or the benefits - I just wanted to get to certain places and that was my mode of transportation. ..   But as I got older and I decided to get to get back into shape the first thing I started doing was riding an old mountain bike on some designated bike trails. And I have been steadily riding for more than the last 10 years.
Years ago a friend was cleaning out his garage and was getting rid of an old mountain bike - I gladly took it off his hands and have been riding it ever since.

Now when I ride I take in all the natural scenes all around Indian Lake Peninsula where I ride. Good scenery and a good physical work out - It's a good way to start your day and begin your exercise regimen. To me it's nicer than being inside a gym. ...  your outside taking in everything around you.... Going down a hill with the wind in your face makes me feel alive and thankful that I am healthy enough to get out there and do it! , ..... It's kinda funny how something so simple can be so much fun,  .. the simple joy of riding a bike. John
