Cycling and Prolifics in Life at 10,000 Miles
By: Richard L. Sleder
About the Book
In the United States, bicycle commuting has seen a fifty percent increase in the past ten years. Cycling as a means of fun and convenient transport, improved strength and wellness, and as a force for benefiting and improving our society for our children and grandchildren, is empowering and can be a source of pride, honor, and moral strength, and fortitude.
Unfortunately, politics is trying to put the brakes on cycling. The current administration recently removed White House bike racks and continues to ignore critical global warming facts. It ignores smart science that would ensure our continued prosperity and happiness in the short-term as well as long-term.
Throughout this book, Richard L. Sleder describes the world he discovers on two wheels. He sees riding as a means to more mobility, independent production and reconnecting with the world around us. The benefits are numerous. Including thoughts and insights, the author also shares journal entries and letters he’s written to improve his path and the path for those around him.
