Oy. Because it's silly to get into a car and drive a mile, but I'm too impatient to walk. Because it's good exercise and I feel good after riding. Because it's almost the only thing that regularly makes me feel optimistic. Because I don't believe in the healthcare system and I don't want to rely on it. Because I enjoy moving across the landscape at 12-18 miles per hour. Because riding regularly keeps me in touch with the seasons. Because I hate fossil fuels. Because it's thrilling to go significant distances under my own power. Because I don't need to talk to anyone. Because nature. Because cycling along bodies of water is mesmerizing. Because speeding down steep hills is better than Great America. Because bikes are cool machines that also please me aesthetically. Bikes are probably the best mechanical invention ever, I could go on.
