How often do you ride a bike? Or walk instead of drive? When we were kids, riding our bikes and going outside were more than just something that we engaged in to keep fit. It was our way of life. It kept the vitality alive and biting at the bit.

Catching the sight of the scenery around you as you progress down the street, adds loads to the overall effects of the trip, mentally and physically. It can keep the mind and the body fresh.
