feeling blue this winter? ride a bike!
seasonal affective disorder (SAD) used to be my worst enemy, i really struggled getting out of bed, feeling unmotivated and lethargic to seize the day, until commuting by bike became the answer to my SADness. exercise in general is widely recognized as a treatment for SAD as it releases endorphins and gives us a sense of well being, but the motions of pedaling on a bicycle releases serotonin, another good feeling inducer. with the sunshine occasionally visiting and following us on our rides, we also increase our vitamin D and well being quota during these dark days. why go for the really expensive solutions when the joy can be felt on your bike?!
