Fitting bicycle riding into everyday life requires many adjustments to our daily schedule. “Maybe I could ride my bike to the mailbox and back”, insert reasons for not doing this here. A simple task like riding to the mailbox seems like such an easy way to add bike riding to our life. I need to get the bike to the driveway, out of the storage area. Then I need to get my backpack so I can carry the mail back. Probably should have a helmet and gloves. Ok, now I am ready… I have a group mailbox about 1/2 mile away… I should allow 20 minutes to complete the job. I do need to celebrate that simultaneously I will be getting a workout in, probably encounter a neighbor or 2 and say hi, and observe my surroundings (woodland forest creatures, a new tree planted, etc). With these benefits, I look forward to completing this adventure tomorrow.
