"I have discovered that driving during post work rush hour takes me just as long as cycling the 20 km distance and it beats staring at the car in front of me and watching out for crazy drivers who weave in and out of traffic hoping to get ahead. Cycling is freedom from traffic as I'm able to use River Valley and designated bike trails for most of my journey. I love the feel of wind and feel of speed, the warmth of sun on my face, the view of nature next to me and surprise visits from birds and critters that inhabit the trails. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to enjoy this journey and get some exercise at the same time.
Driving agitated and fatigued me....cycling refreshes and makes me happy....it can't get any better than that."
