A great thing about riding a bicycle is that it is an opportunity to express other interests. If you like exploring and visiting new places, you can do that from your bike. If you like mechanical things, you can use your interest to keep your bike working in top condition and maybe even improvise some things to work better for you. If you like meeting people, you can take part in group rides. If you like physical conditioning, your bike can take the place of a gym membership. If you want to save money or the planet, you can commute by bike.
I went to my first two years of college at Concordia in St. Paul and biked all over the Twin Cities, but that was in the mid-1960's.
