Chicago, IL USA: You don't need to be (another) Lance Armstrong to enjoy Bike Riding. Biking is not a race, as it's been turned into. It's whatever you make it out to be. In my case, I bike for several reasons:
to alleviate Guilt...
after all, if you are an avid Biker/Bicyclist and make it a daily part of your regiment, the guilt of eating something decadent lessens and shows 'less' on the scale. This is a great feeling that could help Americans reduce and become healthy again...as the Facts are now appearing as to the States of Mississippi and Alabama having problems with Food Consumption.
Inactivity is a sad plight -- Biking relieves that instantly.
As a matter of fact, it is with great pride that as of 8:40 AM today in Evanston, IL I reached:
on my 3-speed. Those speeds are: Slower - Slower - Slowest -- the Speeds I'm most comfortable with. Since May 29, 2008, slightly over a year, I managed to peddle 2400 miles without even leaving the State...this indeed is a record -- one that you can do also...block by block.
More facts on: Biking your Weigh out of Obesity will be presented upon my next Milestone of 2500 miles...Estimated Time of Pedding: July 20TH...
