Top 5 Reasons I Ride My Bike to Church & Work

On my way to church this morning I had a thought… Why don’t more people (in Dayton, OH) ride bikes? After pondering this unfortunate reality I thought of 5 reasons why I ride my bike to work, church and pretty much anywhere I can.

1. It saves us money! We budget about $300/month for gas! And if I can put even the smallest dent in that chunk of change then I’m all for it!

2. The physical benefits! from my house to work and back burns about 300 calories! Not to mention the resistance on my legs helps to build lean muscle… boom-chicka-wow-wow!

3. The AC on my bike is better than the AC in my car! I drive a 22 year old car and the AC doesn’t work. That combined with the engine heat and the valuer seats makes my car a hot box in the summer!

4. My church doesn’t have a dress code! Thanx to PB&J (Pastors Bob & Jamila) for not making MarketPlace Ministries another stuffy/traditional church where people feel out of place if they don’t have on a suit!

5. I don’t get picked to go get lunch! For some reason, the good people at my job tend to pick me to be the lunch go-getter. This isn’t a big deal, but for some unknown, cosmic reason JM’s lunch always comes back wrong when I go pick it up… and I think he suspects me!

My hope is that cycling will catch on and folks will grab hold of the concept and run with it! Ultimately, I ride because it helps me to be a good steward over God’s money and His Temple (my body).

Peace & Love ya’ll…
