Mindful Thoughts for Cyclists: Finding Balance on Two Wheels
"Nick Moore reminds us all that however frequently we may cycle, two wheels is always a rather magical way to travel." - The Simple Things
Cycling is about more than competitive racing, lycra, and physical endurance; it’s about joy, meditative wonder and spiritual enrichment.
Mindful Thoughts for Cyclists presents a series of focused meditations on why and how cycling can be a powerful practice of mindful awareness. From the pleasure of riding down a hill, to finding the upsides of a flat, Nick Moore steers us on an enlightening journey through the true value of riding a bicycle.
