The author of one of my favorite longevity blogs recently wrote a post about National Bicycle Month, in which he embedded a New York Times YouTube video:
Never before has my enjoyment of cycling been so well explained. When I ride, I feel exactly like that guy – except I don’t feel compelled to quit my job, retire, or do anything else extreme to ride. I’m perfectly happy riding an hour a day, give or take, and a few more on weekends. I need a balance in my life, and spending all day, every day, pedaling my bike isn’t it. Unless you know someone who would pay me to do that…. In that case I might be able to make it work.
All that said, I do dig the Doc’s spirit…
Now it’s out the door for me, I’ve got a bike to ride!
