Someone told me they commented on my preferred mode of transportation. They said it was great that I ride to school and what a sacrifice I am making. The reality is that while it is a good for the environment, that is not the primary reason why I ride. EcoVelo hits it right on the nose with their first reason, and provides a great list of additional reasons why us bike riders get on the saddle day after day. They say it’s selfish, and sometimes I think they are right.
“It’s fun. There’s really no other activity that gives us the sense of joy and freedom that we experience while riding our bikes”
