For those who like to ride bikes just for fun – or use them to get back and forth to work or errands – here are some fun cycling ideas worth trying.

The Ride of Silence is an annual bike event that honors cyclists who have died in accidents with motor vehicles. It seeks to raise awareness of cyclists' right to the road. Participants ride no faster than 12 mph for no longer than an hour, and they maintain silence as in a funeral procession.

I used to be a long-distance cyclist. Not a great one. Nor a fast one. Just an average one -- who had a ball every time my wheels were spinning. Fast-forward to today. And even though I've biked a bit around here since we moved to Tennessee, as I kept getting busier and busier, I kept pushing my bike farther and farther into the corner of our garage. Here's how I got re-motivated to get back into cycling. Lots of great tips.

I'm not a triathlete -- just a long distance cyclist who enjoys biking for the FUN of it. Whatever your cycling goals are, I hope that you enjoy these photos and highlights from some of my own cycling experiences!
