It burns a lot of calories. Believe it or not, if you have an average weight you’ll burn up to 600 calories per hour!
It relieves stress. Listen to music, bike in the forests, or just go wherever you like to go. Exercise relieves stress! Get all zen on your bike!
Get toned legs. Of course, biking is a good cardio exercise, but you will absolutely feel your legs when you go for a bike ride! And biking is a lot better for your knees and joints.
Explore your neighbourhood. You can go anywhere on your bike. Go to places you can’t go with a car, or  that are too far away to walk to. Just have fun finding a nice biking route!
It boosts creativity. You’ll think more deepy when you exercise. So if you don’t know what to do for a certain project, job or whatever it might be, jump on the bike and maybe you’ll find the perfect solution! 
It increases your flexibility. Don’t forget to stretch before you go biking. You’ll get more flexible every day!
Beat illness! Regular exercise is even better than eating healthy. It is even proven that people who exercise regularly are 50% less sick than the people who sit all day.
Save the planet. Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space as one car. It takes about 5% of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike, and a bike produces zero air pollution.

Me likes a pinch of cynicism with a drop of sarcasm. Come on motorists. We’re talkin’ to you.
And if you ever wonder why cyclists can seem so angry, please just try and imagine my unplanned jousting with moving hunks of metallic velocity driven by impatient motorists who just know that cyclist, if you see her/him at all, is a jerk. As such here’s MY self righteous plea born of lingering adrenaline, spawned by the fear generated by near misses with 2000 lb. cars:Get the donut out you mouf. Stop Txt-driving. Put the mobile phone down. Look at the Effing road. Learn how to yield. Take a F*CKing breath. Can you please chill behind the wheel for 5 friggin seconds? I swear it’s hardly ever more than FIVE SECONDS. I mean come on, you give that much time to the m&m you dropped on the floor. Do you realize that your impatience and self righteous territorialism puts my life at risk? Share the road (please? And thank you.) The life you save is a mother, a son, an aunt, a beloved son, a grandpa, a friendly neighbor, a grade school kid who doesn’t read driving manuals (like you should have done.) Your actions, responsibility, empathy, and magnanimity prevent broken bones, skinned knees, needless road rash, spilled blood, concussions and even hospitalization (or worse!) . I promise you, a little patience is worth your effort and attention. And I am truly apologetic if my little 20 pound bicycle has caused you a full 10 second delay or raise your ire.
I promise that getting to the grocery store 16 seconds later than you hoped will not jeopardize your modern lifestyle or your carefully coiffed reputation.
And we thank you for your support. :)

    Listening to some old J-pop in an effort to feel better. Luna Sea is one of my favorites. Love Ryuichi’s voice.

    But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.

    A secret turning in us
    makes the universe turn.
    Head unaware of feet,
    and feet head. Neither cares.
    They keep turning.

    Today in Solidarity: Protesters gather in Oakland against the Urban Shield conference and police militarization

    Ever wonder where cities get all their fancy ideas on how to militarize their police force? It’s not just from the Pentagon— it’s conferences like Urban Shield, that highlight the latest in tactical equipment and practices for suppressing the very people you’re sworn to serve. #staywoke #whodoyouprotect #whodoyouserve

  15. Drum sound rises on the air, its throb, my heart.

    A voice inside the beat says, “I know you’re tired, but come. This is the way.
