It’s really easy to feel good when you’re biking in the springtime. This was the weather bikes were made for: the slight breeze, the green tree leaves, light clouds burning off in the emerging sun, and you’re pedaling away looking up and around. It almost makes you want to sing. And you totally can, because you’ve been inspired by the birds and all the people who may think you’re weird you will probably never see again since you’re cruising along at twenty miles an hour and they are walking. Ha!
But be careful not to stay too high in the clouds. Biking is a lot like driving. You have to be aware. Because if a car doesn’t see you while you’re singing you could easily need a few new bike accessories or even worse, the money for a trip to the hospital. Cycling accessories like tail lights are a good idea because it doesn’t have to be dark for them to work. A bell is another one of those good bicycle accessories, especially if you’re biking in a high foot-traffic area.
So enjoy the beautiful biking months, but don’t get too lost in the pleasure of cruising. Bike safety is important too.
