why cycling is notable

One of my secret shames is that I occasionally visit Facebook, partly because the Princeton Freewheelers club page has info that doesn't appear anywhere else, and partly to see Ed Kanitra's Bicycle New Jersey page.

On the latter page, in the comments to a link to an article on Why Cycling Makes Us Happy, a fellow member with the excellent screen name of Pete Jr Leather said this:

Bicycling, (for Transportation, Sport, or Exercise) is notable for these basic things:
  1. You get to sit down.
  2. The scenery changes.
  3. like all 'technology derived hobbies', it satisfies the 'Human 'need' for gadgets'.

That is next door to perfect. I wish I'd said it.
