A vital tool for the underachieving adult is the bicycle. Gas free and largely self maintainable, for those of us who are struggling, a bicycle is like a gift from God.
Cycling is also a major draw for those of us with eco related concerns. Grungy hippy types convene with mass bike ride such as critical mass to show their presence and force.
The bicycle also provides exercise, eliminating the need for a gym membership. My buying a car has been the major reason for my weight gain. I used to ride hours a day. Now my bike doesn’t even work. It’s hard to try and change my diet after being able to eat whatever I want and burn it off by necessity for years.
I really miss riding my bike all over the place. Here where it is more rural, there are tons of bike trails… I can’t wait to get a good mountain bike and hit the woods.
