Feel free to post a thought of gratefulness here whenever you like. Gratitude (even just the exercise of looking for something for which to be grateful) will improve your health.

 

Here's what Eric Barker, UCLA researcher, has to say about it:

 

Gratitude, Gratitude, Gratitude
I can’t emphasize this one enough. Showing gratitude for the good things you have is the most powerful happiness boosting activity there is.
It will make you happier.
It will improve your relationships.
It can make you a better person.
It can make life better for everyone around you.

Grateful for bike designers and engineers. Today on the trail we saw road bikes, recumbent trikes, mountain bikes, cyclocross, fat boys, cruisers, elliptical bikes, kids on tricycles, tandems. So wonderful to see so many people enjoying the trail.
