Mindful Biking – Moving Meditation

I recently cycled the Tomorrow River Trail, a secluded historic rail-trail through central Wisconsin.  I thought the route was going to be a relatively easy ride but it turned out to be a challenge due to excessive winds.

When I cycle, I enjoy the adventure, but I also appreciate that its a moving meditation that clears my mind and invigorates me in ways that other sports don’t.  I love that its a combination of physical exercise and mindfulness.

Tomorrow River’s Trail consists of a crushed stone trail that is 29.2 miles long.  It passes through open fields and tree lined paths, extending through several counties.  If you want to get off the trail, there are several small rural towns to explore along the way.

Being an active biker, I try to explore a new trail each week as I love the combination of physical exercise and mindfulness.  If you haven’t tried it yet, get out of your house and start cycling.  There are new trails to explore!
