Why I Bike: Lori
I grew up in a wonderful neighborhood where every child owned his or her own bike. I don't ever remember not owning a bike. My three older brothers taught me how to ride a bike.
In what city and state do you live?
Little Rock, AR
What is the biking culture like there?
We have lots of bikers -from serious to those out for a Sunday stroll. I feel AR is a well -kept secret in that it's one of the most beautiful states complete with mountains, trails and lakes. It's perfect for biking.
What kind of bike do you have?
How often do you ride your bike?
Not nearly enough! I try to ride one weekend day/month. That's all I can do most of the time.
I wish drivers... I never ride around cars. The whole experience for me is to take in the beauty around me. Cars and roads are not inspiring!
I would ride my bike even more if... I didn't have a never ending to do list.
My favorite bike snack:
KIND bars and water
My favorite piece of bike gear is my zippered pouch under the seat. It holds all the essentials...Keys, Kleenex and lipgloss.
Do you ride your bike in all weather?
Nope, I'm a total wimp. I like the temperature to be between 60-80.
Do you own a car?
I mostly ride my bike for exercise and "connecting" with my soul or with friends
My favorite thing about riding my bike....
having time to ride and consider what really matters.
Thank you, Lori! Keep riding :)
