Easter comes at a time when the weather is mellowing and more folks think about getting outside and enjoying the air. Maybe slimming down. The whole idea of Easter is rejuvenation, right? Spring; new life. Well, biking is the coolest way I know to get outside and feel reborn.
I hope you will enjoy these images and ideas as much as I do.
I just love that little poster. The Earth sends a lil extra luv to those on bicycles… It says so right there.
What’s not to like?
Most years I ride my bike farther than I drive my car. That’s something you might be able to do …
Isn’t it interesting that Minneapolis is one of the top cities for biking in the country?
It’s a good day for a ride …
Happy Easter, bunny!
One little safety note: besides a helmet, get those biking gloves.
If When you fall, you are going to put your hands out in front of you. The gloves will protect them from glass, dirt and anything else on the road.

I seem to have a case of Easter Spirit, or maybe it’s just Spring Fever. We actually had some sun and pleasant weather here in Chicago yesterday afternoon and it got to me. In any event, I am feeling really expansive this Easter Sunday morning and wish you the same.
The idea of achieving and maintaining good health in this blog really is just an exercise (no pun intended) in restoring ourselves on a daily basis, isn’t it? We wake up in the morning and our body says to us, metaphorically, what have you done for me lately? It’s nice that you ate well and got some exercise yesterday, but this is a new day. So, get to it.
So, in the spirit of Easter and rebirth and good health I wanted to share these two infographics on the benefits of exercise to our brains. Too often we overlook these benefits which are so important to us today and even more so tomorrow, in our senior years.

Regular readers know that my family history includes both Alzheimer’s and dementia. So, exercise is most relevant to me. When people ask me why I ride my bike every day, I always tell them that I am paying for my old age one bike ride at a time.
