"...what we need is more people that ride bikes." True words spoken by Michael Bauch, maker of the now well-known bicycle documentary 'Riding Bikes With The Dutch'.
There are many words for different purposes utilizing the best invention ever. Don't let the labels distract you. And there are many people who like you to believe that you need to worry about all sorts of gear before even thinking about hopping on that saddle. Be very suspect of those, they only want to sell you stuff you don't really need.
Instead, focus on the important: breathe that air, let your mind escape, absorb your city, town, neighborhood, streets, bricks, sounds, smells. Connect with your habitat. Nod, affirm, gesture, be gentle. Let it tingle, sing, hum, rock, or just be. Be you. At ease, at your own pace. Agile & smooth, flexible, purposeful. No sweat, no religion, no politics, just you & those you choose, those who you encounter. Those who will help you and you will meet again.
It will make you feel so much better. 100% guaranteed.
Don't take it from me. Ask any of these people. ;)
Even when it's not really your day...
