Bicycling is an efficient, fun way to get around — and it’s also one of the best
workouts you can get. There’s also plenty of cool gear out there that will
make your 2-wheeled experience even more enjoyable.
When it comes to cycling, all shoes are decidedly
not created equal. The Diadora Speedracer
2 Carbon Road Shoes sport a great fit and
breathable construction, using a combination
of buckles, Velcro and the brand’s V-Fit Adjust
System to make sure your foot is securely and
comfortably placed. The shoe also boasts a
special, super-rigid sole that helps impart full
power to your pedals; $306, Diadora.com.
Even in South Florida, the weather isn’t always
great for cycling. Don’t let hurricane season foil
your plans and keep training with the Wattbike
Pro. Created through a collaboration with British
Cycling, the Wattbike accurately measures power
output, pedaling technique and heart rate. It also
connects up to your PC to give you some seriously
detailed information about your cycling style and
how to improve it; $2,995, Wattbike.com.
Bicycling is one of the best ways to enjoy seeing
a new place, but getting your bike across the
country or the ocean can be a challenge. Leave it
at home, and you risk being forced to use inferior
equipment while on vacation. This Thule Round
Trip Bike Case safely stores your bike at home,
on your vehicle, or while traveling abroad. It’s
built of solid polyethylene and fits both road and
mountain bikes in a way that’ll foil even the most
determined baggage (mis)handler at the airport;
42 Balanced Exercise
Achieving balance is usually defined
as stability of mind and body. But the
term has also come to apply to the
relationship between work and life.
These simple exercises will help you
find the right equilibrium. Try them and
let the joy flow through you.
• Breathe In: Breath is the miracle of
life but it’s often taken for granted.
Whenever you feel the need to be
recharged, calm down or fully enjoy
life, simply take deep breaths to the
count of 5 — in and out — and watch
the splendor of your life source.
• Self- Responsibility: Take
responsibility for your life and lifestyle.
Avoid complaining and blaming, as
such habits prevent a feeling of well-
being. Worry and fear are also the
enemies of balanced living.
• Natural Meditation: Practice silence
in the natural surroundings that most
uplift you. Honor the life force that’s
all around you and consider the impact
on all of your senses. Reflect this
beauty in your daily life and remember
you have one life in your body, so you’d
better live it well.
