My wife Shirley and I are counting the weeks to the first-ever Bici Bucerias Couples Bike Tour on November 16 to 23 in Mexico. Should be tons of fun: touring the cobblestone streets, the miles and miles of beaches, and the beautiful Sierra Madre Mountains in this charming Mexico town with my best pal on our trusty bikes! What more can a guy ask for, besides tacos? If you haven’t noticed it yet, I love biking – it takes me places! But even just back home in Calgary, there are few things I’m happier doing than biking.
Everyone needs a break.
It’s a busy world out there, and sometimes we need to switch gears to power up and keep going. So I get on my bike and go! It recharges me like nothing and helps me work harder than ever.
It keeps me active.
I guess my body’s wired to move, move, move… which is good as it keeps me healthy. And the plus is it makes me feel like a million dollars, like I can conquer the world! But I don’t drive myself too hard: I do short bike races to prepare for longer ones on the Rocky Mountains.
It lets me enjoy nature and get some fresh air.
There are wonderful Rocky Mountain biking trails where I live in Calgary, where the views will just astound you and where you can get all the fresh air you want into your lungs. And that’s not all… I was in this bike race once and looking forward to a great finish as I was in top form, when the race was stopped mid-course because there were three bears and an elk on the course! Only in Alberta do you get a mid-race bear break!
It sharpens my concentration and perseverance.
Biking not only calls for much stamina, but also demands intense concentration, especially on rough terrain. You have to keep your eyes and your mind on the road yet stay keenly aware of what’s happening around you. And yes, you’ll need to push yourself beyond your limits to get to the finish line. Great practice for my work and for all other areas of my life!
It gives me bonding time with family and friends.
Half the fun of biking is when you’re with good company; time passes so quickly you’ll be amazed you’re already there! It gives me the perfect excuse to spend quality time with my family and friends.
Check out my Facebook for great pictures of me and my friends biking on amazing trails! What about you — do you bike? What keeps you at it?
