Benefits of an evening bike ride

When I have time, I really like to get in a nice evening bike ride.  I wait till the sun is low and the temperature is going down.  These are short rides that are just more for relaxation and just closing out the day.  Usually, I use this as an opportunity to take out one of my vintage bikes.  Here is a nice evening picture of the Raleigh Sports.

  1. Due to my poor back, I haven’t touched my bike in nearly a decade. My son, however, started college two weeks ago and says he enjoys “midnight bike rides” across campus. I can see how a young person could find perspective on in the dark solitude that way.
