The Best Part of Biking

The best part of commuting by bike is that I don’t have to spend part of the day here:

 

 

Instead, my days go like this:

 

 

And before you assume this was a bike ride for leisure or exercise, it was actually a trip to the grocery store. I needed an eggplant.

(And yes, this awesome music follows me everywhere I go.)

Yours is one of the very few blogs that I see the alert in Google reader and I click to leave Google Reader to see it in it’s full glory.

amazing…as always. You are going to get a reputation for excellence if you keep this up :) What did you use to film your ride?

Thanks! It was shot on a crappy old Nikon Coolpix (still camera w/video mode + gorilla pod/bungee cables) It broke soon after this…

I kept thinking your knee was going to crash into the camera; great short film!

Damn, you pedal fast :)

I find I’ve come to appreciate my slight pooch and love handles, because it means I eat well and enjoy myself (it’s from a little too much good food, not from eating nasty ickyness), and I appreciate that I get daily exercise just in the course of going places, because it means that my little pooch isn’t a big gut :)

Great video!

Here’s one of my wife and I going grocery shopping together :)

Eating well and enjoying life is important- I could not function without dessert or pasta. But in the past the gym it always failed because it felt purposeless. So now I exercise towards food 😉

To think I spent all those years in the gym when I was your age. If only I had ridden my bike more back then. Bike rides are so much more appealing.

Nice video and Dave’s video is pretty cool too.
