I feel much less stressed after a ride. I enjoy watching the photos on my blog. I enjoy being out in nature. It keeps my waistline at a reasonable level, even though I need to lose more weight. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I get after completing a difficult ride, a feeling that I never get at my current, dead end job. I enjoy experiencing the change of seasons while biking. The summer sunsets, the autumn leaves and chilling air, the sting of winter cold and then, the welcome warming of spring.
