RIDE TO LIVE, LIVE TO RIDE
A cliche, perhaps, but cycling as a way of life isn't a bad option

I picked up this sticker at a Hilly Hundred a few years ago and stuck it on the outside rails of my Beetle-top bike rack. "Ride to Live, Live to Ride." Not sure all that might mean, but it signals, at least, that cycling is a good physical exercise.
Bicycling is aerobic, so you don't get the stress on joints experienced in running that keep so many people I talk to away from meaningful, needed exercise. Cycling's also a way to conserve energy and save money. Use your bike for short trips to the store in the evening or commute to work one or two days a week. The benefits are multiple.
