The weather has been so great here on the Gulf Coast for the last month. Virtually no rain, mild temps and not-to-bad humidity. Today I decided to take a little bit longer to get home. I just went around a couple extra city blocks, enjoyed the breeze, waved to some folks on their porch, and took the extra time to daydream a little. What is it about a nice bike ride that is so relaxing and pleasant. I wonder if it is some kind of perfect balance between being active, being outside, and feeling like a kid. While my body is working at a very nice pace, my mind is able to concentrate on the physical aspects and I have enough brainpower left for musing about my wife, kids, work, the day’s happenings, etc. Maybe there is balance not only physically, but also mentally when taking a casual bike ride. That has got to be good for you!
