Since then I’ve ridden many miles for multiple charities and I’ve joined an all women’s bike club. I ride as often as I can and have met some really fantastic folks. There’s something liberating about just jumping on a bike and going wherever your legs take you.
You see so much more on a bike than behind the wheel of a car. I love riding on the trails that surround the city and even downtown on the square. Long distance rides in the country are my favorite, pedaling past fields, rivers and cows. No iPod, cellphone or laptop…just a girl on a bike. It’s odd, really, it’s as “unconnected” as you can get, yet I’ve never felt so in sync with my surroundings as when I’m riding. It’s as close as Jen gets to Zen and I absolutely love it.
