There is something special about riding a bicycle; it can change a familiar landscape into a playground, reduce grown adults into giggling children and can be welcome escape from just about anything that ails you. Sometimes it feels like, one pedal stroke at a time, you shed all of the little problems and worries that life recklessly throws at you. On a day that is about independence and freedom, hopping on a bicycle and going for a spin seems all too fitting.
Get out there this weekend and experience the freedom of riding. Take your family on a ride. Go explore somewhere you’ve never explored. Ride like you’re a kid again. Take your bike to watch the fireworks or ride to a picnic. Cruise around the park with a loved one. Smile, laugh, pedal and repeat until your content. A bicycle can be a powerful thing so get out there and ride.
Enjoy your 4th of July and keep your wheels spinning.
