one of the things I love about cycling is its simplicity. sure, i ride my bike everyday for fun, errands, commuting, exercise, and relaxing. yet, it's so much more when it's just you, the wind blowing across your face, your legs pedaling, and the two wheels spinning beneath you. cycling gives you a chance to unwind, a chance to explore, a chance to take in the world around you. cycling is not hard, nor is it dangerous, nor do you need to know everything there is about cycling. it is only as demanding as you want it to be. and of course, there are some concerns you might have to have to take into account. they are, however, mostly secondary. it doesn't matter what kind of gear you have, what kind of clothes you wear, or what kind of bike you ride. cheap, expensive, new, old. it doesn't matter, it's all great. what matters, is the journey you take in that brief moment in time, where it’s just you and the road.
