#WhyIRide: The Reasons Are Endless
This May, we’re asking the question, “With so many reasons to ride, what’s yours?” The beauty of the bicycle is that it means many things to many people, so we wanted to highlight some of those many reasons this National Bike Month.
Today, we heard from Eric Wagner, of Alexandria, Va., who wrote a poem about his reason(s). His reason to ride?
Because commuting to work year-round though heat and cold, rain, snow and wind offers me so many benefits.
I don’t have to take the car or public transportation,
I always know how long it will take me to get to work or get home
I get my workout,
I meet interesting people,
I see the changes in the neighborhood and in vegetation
I set a good example for my children
I remain healthy,
I am much less stressed and don’t get upset about every little thing
I get to ride my bike(s)
and, and, and…
What’s your reason to ride? Tell us and you could see it here later this month!
