I just finished a 4-week tour of the UK. I've been asked a few times if I enjoyed my bike tour. The obvious answer is "Yes, I did," but it feels so incomplete.
I realize such questions are part of social convention but it got me to thinking about what words others would use to describe their bike tours. The best I've come up with is "satisfying." That is, I find bike touring to be a deeply satisfying personal experience.
To me, the work "enjoy" suggests "fun." But, bike touring is so much more (and sometimes less) than a "fun" time that it seems completely inadequate.
