I go out for a bicycle ride every other day, usually 30-35 miles. I have 4 or 5 different loops to choose from my apartment on the east side of Tucson. My routes are mostly on quiet, low traffic streets or along the large network of bike paths in the Tucson area.

Today was a 31 mile loop on the southeast side of Tucson, and back home through mid-town. It rained yesterday and showers continued overnight, so the air today was especially fresh and clean. The temps were cool, around 60F/14C with light wind, which is fine for bike riding or walking. It seemed like a Sunday morning, there were very few people out walking or bike riding. There is hardly a better therapy than breathing fresh air and getting some exercise while enjoying the natural surroundings. And hey, the Santa Rita mountains had a nice cap of fresh snow!

I am with you on getting out for some exercise! I walk about 2.5 miles in the morning and the same in the afternoon pretty much every day. I do come across other walkers, usually in the mornings out for exercise or walking their dogs, but on the hot summer afternoons, I have the place to myself!!! I am glad you have found "therapy" that you enjoy! Where I live, we have a front row seat of the Santa Ritas, and that new veil of snow is gorgeous!
