    I love getting some fresh air on my daily ride, and having nothing else to do while I cycle. It is my meditation time.

      I agree! It makes me feel so much less anxious than sitting in traffic.  I can't think of a better way to start or end my day, especially when I get a glimpse of the sunrise or sunset.
