One of the truest statements that I have ever read was said by Albert Einstein: “Life is like riding a bicycle, to have balance you must keep moving”.
Everybody needs to practice sports to be healthy and to have the pleasure of working out.
Many people – including myself – found this perfect combination in riding a bike.
When you ride a bicycle you feel free, the wind blows on your face. You can go anywhere you want. You can meet other people and start new friendships that will last for a long time: while you are riding and also at other moments of your personal life!
I started practicing this wonderful sport in the beginning of 2014. Now I don´t know what I would do if I couldn´t ride a bike.
It makes me feel powerful and brings me challenges that I struggle to overcome.
We have a group of girls that ride three times a week; on the weekends we ride with the boys of “Pedal Batistense”.
This group was founded in 2012 and in 2014 we started to do a big tour at Easter, that is called “Pedal da Paixão”.
In 2015, 250 cyclists went to Angelina to pray and overcome this challenge. This year the ride happened on March 25.
So, If I could give you some advice, that would be: practice a sport that you like, and you will add years to your life!
