Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.

The “Tour de Farms” seems to be such an excellent way to show our support for a useful project and these our ways by which we can support our community and at the same time have some fun with our friends as well!! The ride certainly seems to be interesting with it covering farms, vineyards and other interesting places!! I love riding around and would love to catch up on this hobby and I hope I can make it next year!!
