I agree, the same reason I became a rider. I have been a runner for many years but I was limited on the ground I could cover. On a bike I can experience so much more, plus going downhill, what a rush!I started riding (as an adult) just to clear my brain and feel like a child again. Riding is such a freeing experience. What is just around the next corner, or over the next hill? Keep pedalling and find out. Oh what fun.
