  • Riding Bikes

    Okay, while I love motorcycles, this isn't about those.

    It's about regular bikes. I bought one in college, a fifteen speed mountain bike. It cost like 50 bucks at Wal-Mart. I rode it all through school when the weather permitted, and then it came home and sat for a bit. In any case, yesterday I got it out and filled it with air and dusted it off. It runs good as ever... which says something for a fity dollar bike.

    I just kinda like going out tooling around. I'm not one of those serious bikers that spends all that money on shoes, hats, gloves, spandex (yuck!) and a matching T-shirt for my $3500 bike... I just kinda ride around and putz off. It's fun, relaxing, an escape. It also encourages me to smoke less - I simply don't desire a cigarette after I ride.

    Anyone else ride or jog or something similar?

    That's kinda funny...I jog 5-6 miles 3 or 4 times a week, and love "putzing" off on the bike with my son. It too encourages me to smoke less.

    Which leads me to another point I get tired of people who think just because you smoke you're in lousy shape. I smoke abouot 10-12 a day (depending on the stress level) and I'm in better shape than most of the people I know.
    Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.

    It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

      Same here..I smoke about 10-12 a day, run 3 miles 4 days a week, and play football for about 90 minutes on sundays.

                        you're mom goes to college!

                        i have a bike i've had for years but don't ride it anymore. i used to run in high school and wish i still ran but i can't find a running partner and i don't like to do it by myself. hitting the treadmill at apt complex for 3 miles (mostly walking) is about all i ever do now.

                            i'm in highschool now and i run all the time. Its good to get your mind off of stress and stuff like that. i run for the school track and cross country teams, i would do football but i don't have the body for it. Next time i'm in South Carolina (which will probably be never) we'll go for a jog.
                            I dont need a sig...Go Broncos should be good enough.
