I have always possessed such an eminent desire to ride my bike everywhere that my excitement can be compared to a kid’s in a candy store. I feel a spirit of adventure in being free to observe and appreciate my surroundings even more than simply driving a car. In this manner, I prevent myself from becoming overwhelmed by today’s fast paced lifestyle. If I could spend the rest of my life earning a living by riding my bike, I could inspire others to help save our planet in peril by reducing the number of cars on the road. I can ignite a sense of compassion in people about mother Earth and widen perspectives about the reality of our current global crisis. Not only that, but I can also advocate healthier lifestyles by getting people off the couch and out on the road. We may also live longer as many health benefits exist with riding a bike long term. I would challenge people to step out of their comfort zone and experience a different approach in traveling to work or school or wherever. I may not be able to change the world on my own, but I have hope that sharing my passion for a simple task such as riding a bike can spark a change, however big or small.
