About Bicycling Readers Share How Cycling Changed Their Lives
David Fiedler writes a popular column that is quite informative.
Recently he reached out to readers:
A bike is a simple machine, but it almost seems to have magical powers . . . an amazing ability to literally change people's lives. It's a device that's good for getting to school or buzzing around town, sure. But a bike is also something that can restore health, restore sanity, reduce traffic and help the planet in the process.
If you have a powerful story to share about how bicycling changed your life, we'd love to hear it.
I got real sick last april, but thanks to Dr Corbett, and a bike, I am now in perfect health, and look forward to my weekend rides.
I just wish we had a bike club in crystal river, Fl.!

What's so special about biking?
Dunno, but time and again, the best songwriting I've done started on a bike. Some magical alchemy, something about powering those pedals...
