This occurred to me while reading some of the current posts, so I did a forum search...and came up with nothing .
Do you ride to reap the benefits of exercise? Or simply enjoy the riding? Or did you start for the former and get converted on the latter?
I started riding purely for the pleasure of it, but I sanctimoniously use the health angle as an excuse to dodge other activities and go on rides instead.
Don't tell on me, okay?
