bicycle riding has recently become an important part of our daily lives.

we bicycle whenever possible, avoiding automobiles.

this popular childhood activity positions my body into that alternate universe, of the 1980s, of when exercise existed before calories and aesthetics mattered.

it’s a lovely activity and fundamental to my healthy life.

so, to combat the darker days of autumn, i bought headlights!  gwendolyn picked them out.  our favourite adventure store, REI, welcomed gwendolyn with smiles and ear rubs!

as summer moves to autumn and the lighted days become shorter, how are your exercise rituals affected?
