what makes for best exercise in retirement ?

* significant health upgrade via body’s own endorphin production

* outdoors, connect back with all that’s fresh & real
call it reconnecting with childplay


* varieties of putting out – taking it in
rests when needed. sure, restroom too

* varieties too in settings, colors, tastes, connections
beauty everywhere along the way

* all-in-one direction, returning to the start
without redoing parts just covered. say, a loop

* repeat on a weekly schedule
for positive results minus long-haul damage / recovery


* set own schedule on nothing more than simple nature itself
fair weather, cool temps

* sometimes share the experience with friends

* welcome new inspirations, interests, startups in visual arts, music
green & animal friends, here & there a human too

* so how about making monroe part of your own life !
whadya think ? takes us all to make it happen
so what is it gonna take to make it happen ?
your ideas ?

  1. Although I did not introduce myself, I met up with Jim this morning at the DeBary Hall (one of the rest stops along the Gemini Springs bike trail. Interesting gentlemen. I couldn’t agree more with what he said in the intro of the benefits of having a loop around Lake Monroe. My wife, Cindy & I, ride the trail every week and love it. It gives meaning to serenity.

  2. I think this would be wonderful for folks that want to feel safe in riding extensive miles in a scenic environment. I have done many versions of this ride on road around lake Monroe for the past 22 years. Throw in a restaurant stop for breakfast or lunch and it really breaks up the ride distance. Will ride for Food!
