Cycling makes me feel so alive. Why?
The positive addiction.
An addiction with benefits. It’s a free gym on wheels. The satisfaction of a great workout. The feeling you get when conquering a mountain. The low impact on your body. The feeling of effortlessly getting fit. Being able to satisfy your vanity. Sculpted calves. Rock hard quads. Amazing legs. Being effortlessly lean. A healthy heart. The natural high.
There is no such thing as a bad ride.
Pre-ride coffee. Mid-ride coffee. Mid-ride lunch breaks. Post-ride pig-outs.The ability to eat whatever you want. The social aspect. The wonderfully positive people you will meet from all walks of life. The connection with people who share the same passion.
The fact that it’s considerably cheaper than a car and with many more benefits. Lowering your carbon footprint. Zipping joyfully by traffic jams. Riding to work and feeling on top of the world when you arrive. Extra energy. Better health. Better sleep. Better mind, body and soul. The undeniable fun.
The sense of freedom.
The wind in your hair. The feeling of being closely connected to your surroundings. The feeling of awe and inspiration when you ride past beautiful landscapes. The knowledge that being able to experience something this marvelous is so much better on a bicycle than in a car. Flying down the road on a 100% human-powered machine. Losing yourself in your thoughts and self-reflection. The magical phenomenon of all your problems melting away and feeling absolutely at peace. Escaping the stress of every day life. Not being able to stop smiling. Feeling so blessed.
