Love Outdoor Bike Riding-- good for the soul and body!

I love this time of year. Exercising becomes a joy as I move outside to bike, hike, walk, garden and swim. My husband and I cycled around on our bike paths. It was a joy to see all the flowers in bloom from the lilacs and poppies to the phlox and flax.
You also get to see the other families out and about walking, playing ball or biking together. Everyone seems to have bigger smiles on their faces. I certainly do.
There is so much to see and respond to. Our typical 13 - 15 mile ride takes us through neighborhoods and farmland. We see people gardening and tending to their homes. Then we see dogs lounging, horses grazing, cows ruminating and goats gazing. The birds are amazing to watch as well. There are so many varieties-- big and small. All busy talking, flocking and flitting about for food.
Just can't beat it. If you haven't yet, get out and enjoy the beauty around us. It inspires.
