More Than Just Pedaling

I wrote last summer about some of the mindfulness I was discovering commuting 6 miles to work, mostly on bike trails in our city. The other day I was riding the stationary bike at the rec center and realized that stationary cycling has a whole range of possibilities for mindfulness and meditation. After all it is highly repetitive with few distractions, like oncoming traffic.

I spent some time Googling the web and found some interesting sites. I am still looking at that, but thought I would simply post a quote I found there for today:

A bicycle is a magic mirror. You get your own personal reflection back from the bicycle. The inner journey parallels the outer one when you ride.

— Joel Solomon

Quote found on Bicycle Meditations web site.
