The joys of cycling as seen through the eyes of a runner
"Thereís something thoroughly liberating and refreshing about riding
country roads with the wind hitting your face and body. Speeding
has a bit of a thrill factor that running can never provide,
an obvious risk factor (crashing) thatís not an issue when running.
You can cover so much more ground and see much more than when
running for an
hour workout. On longer rides of 25 miles or more, Iíve been able to
places that I havenít gotten to on foot ó seeing vineyards,
scenic vistas from hilltops and a little wildlife.
One of the best things about cycling in hilly areas is you can take
break on the downhills. But the uphills are really taxing. They
equivalent to speed work when running because you get your heart
Iím sure riding in general, especially doing hills, is working thigh
muscles in a way running doesnít, too. And cycling is a great way
cross-train for running."
