Bluer Skies on a Bike

July 7, 2017 - Willie Weir blogs for Adventure Cycling every other Friday.

Riding a bike turns up life’s intensity meter. It makes food taste better. It heightens your sense of smell. And unencumbered by a metal shell, it puts you in touch with the countryside you’re traveling through.

Pedal across your city, your country, your world, and see for yourself ... skies truly are bluer from the seat of a bike.
