In down times I do things like go for a long bike ride or run. The other thing I'm doing in that quiet time is just observing.

Whoever invented the bicycle deserves the thanks of humanity.
—Lord Charles Beresford
Greenways and trails offer a new way of looking at how a community’s cultural, historic, recreational and conservation needs fit into an overall picture that also includes economic growth.
