Parents here is something the entire family can enjoy. We are going to address healthy living and reading all in one spot. Enjoy!
During an interview with author Grant Petersen he shared from his book on bike riding titled, “Just Ride”. Here are a few tips that he had to offer that will encourage you to get out and ‘Just Ride’ again. This insightful interview into the world of cycling is intended to set the average person at ease, while encouraging them to consider bike riding as a way to explore the outdoors.
This ‘radically practical guide to riding your bike’ was designed to motivate a person who has made it too hard to get back on the bike with excuses like: ‘I don’t know how to ride anymore’, ‘There are two many things that have changed since I last rode’ or ‘I don’t have a bike’. This last one is a great excuse one might think. But as the world around us is focusing on being more healthy there are no excuses. Just recently during the Democratic National Convention bike stations were adding for the community to enjoy as they go sight seeing. So you don’t even have a reason to make excuses about not having a bike or a place to store it. It has been taken care of for you.
He gave simple tips on keeping yourself hydrated and what special gear to wear during your ride. Or should we say here, not so special. He states that comfortable clothes are as specific as you need to get with your gear. He knows that we have been told about ‘breathable’ clothing, he says they do not exist. Jump put on what you would be comfortable in during a bike ride. This keeps it simple. As for your special drink during those rides, he says, “Water is good enough.” And “Drink when you are thirsty, not before.”
He says not to worry yourselves to death that you might not be able to have children if you ride a bike. We have talked ourselves out of living a healthy lifestyle because we believe it make cause more harm than good. Don’t believe Grant Petersen says.
He has put together a book that has a lot of quirky rules that he claims, “some are counterintuitive while others are controversial”. Either way all riders will put this book down feeling prepared for “any and every bump in the road”.
