After getting the sporterra, some months back, my riding has been as per aptly quoted below:- "Too often I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen."
-- Louis L'Amour, novelist (1908-1988)
I go for weekly sunday ride about 20km in all, at speed of about 14-20kph in the morning hours.
What i found THE best about cycling was that, it gives you the pleasure of appreciating the mundane things in life, things which otherwise, one takes for granted and are probably missed in the fast pace of life and off course of the "fuel" driven vehicles.
Attaching links to my sunday cycling trips(FB)- off course you would hardly see cycle in it- because it is my appreciation of surroundings while on the machine.

Many of you might be into the speed and distances, but to me, the charm of quiet cycling, while smelling the nature around, is the best!
