L.I.F.E.- List Idea Friday Everyone

Every Friday I will feature a new idea from the book Dream it. List it. Do it! that you can add to your life’s to do list.

This week's selection comes from the chapter "Live in the Moment":

Race downhill on my bike and feel the wind in my hair

Man, I miss being a kid. I miss having carefree days and making up fun games with my friends. I miss spending all summer in the pool. I miss Popsicles melting all over my fingers. I miss being outside more.

I don't have a bike anymore. I really have no where to put one. If I had a garage though, I just might go buy a bike. I miss riding my bike around the neighborhood until the streetlights came on.

I would also love to go biking in Umstead State Park which is right up the road from my house. Earlier this week when the weather was nice I could see bikers on a trail that runs through the park on my drive home. I was enjoying the wind blowing through my hair because I had the top down on my bug, but there is just something about biking that a convertible cannot capture.

I think I will add some kind of biking adventure to my 40 before 40 list.

How about you? Do you still know how to ride a bike?

My bike needs to be adopted! Umstead! SO jealous of all of your triangle area parks! It was what you traded out for Cubbies - ha!

Oh bike riding is good. You should try down hill mountian biking if you want that thrill.

Oh wow. I hope I still know how to ride a bike, although it's been a long time! I can't even remember the last time I rode. Years, must be.

There's so much I miss about being a kid.

I've got a bike, but it's currently got 2 flat tires! I need to get it fixed and then I plan to start riding again... if I ever find a house to live in. It's been a long time since I've ridden, but I do like to ride. I have one of those bike computers that will tell you how many miles you've gone, etc. If you do a bike trip, consider one, they're fun!
