Why ride a bicycle?
Today I rode from my house to the new Hub Housing Cooperative building (about 4 miles) to meet with some of the other members and a contractor that may bid on our remodeling work (green resources requested). Then I rode to my friend Jodi's new place (about 9 miles) and then home (about 5 and a half miles).

From Why ride a bicycle?:
A Zen teacher once asked his students why they rode bicycles. One said he rode to carry potatoes. Another cycled to observe the world. A third said it cleared the mind, and a fourth said cycling put him in harmony with all sentient beings. The Zen master was pleased, but when the fifth replied, "I ride my bicycle to ride my ," the teacher sat at the student's feet and said, "I am your student."
