Our crews are real experts at conserving energy.

Some people wonder how we get the energy to ride 50 or 100 miles a day averging better than 20 mph on bicycles.

The answer is that we do not ride 50 or 100 miles a day averaging better than 20 mph. We might ride 20 or 30 miles a day at a more leisurely pace.

We are more in the category of the Casual Cyclists. Our objective is enjoyment through exercise while viewing the scenery.

We prefer to ride a different trail every time. This is not always possible. Visit our Directions page for ideas on new trails.

This does, however, bring up the subject of energy and energy conservation.

ENERGY is an important topic because we need good health to have the energy to go out and ride bicycles even 20 or 30 miles. By riding our bicycles, we can actually gain energy within our bodies by becoming more healthy. This might also lead into a discussion of what foods to eat or fluids to drink to achieve maximum energy.

That is not the purpose of this site. We do acknowledge that healthy eating will contribute to longer life, better lifestyles and perhaps even faster speeds and longer rides on our bicycles, but our focus is on matching trails with history.

There is also the topic of GETTING TO all these DIFFERENT TRAILS. We obviously do not ride our bicycles everywhere, although that is not such a bad idea. Some people do ride all the way across the country. We, however, do not do that. We put our bicycles on a rack attached to our automobile and drive to these various different trails. This might come as a huge disappointment for some, but we are after all, Casual Cyclists.

Our big thrill comes from arriving at a new destination to find a terrific trail with gorgeous scenery and plenty of historical landmarks or architecture. This, for us, is like watching a documentary on a big screen TV, except we are actually there. That was the whole point of starting this DVD series. We knew that other people could enjoy seeing the same sights and hearing the same sounds that we have experienced while casually riding our bicycles. We are going there anyway, so why not capture it for others to see ?

That is what Bicycling Through History is all about.

There is usually some significant history associated with every trail we ride and our purpose is to bring that to life. There are so many people who ride these very trails and are not aware of the history that when we provide them with this information, it may compel them to ride more or seek out more places to ride with fascinating history.

There is certainly no shortage of history.

The real benefit accrues from the fact that as we ride our bicycles, contributing to our own health, we also have the opportunity to experience nature and our surroundings in a very energy efficient manner.
