May is National Bike Month

May 01, 2015

May is National Bike Month, a month-long event trying to get couch potatoes outside, cars off the roads and subway trains empty. It encourages everyone to get back onto their bicycles to enjoy riding a bike as often as they can during the month (and hopefully longer). May is the beginning of the summer and warm weather, so why not start right away and enjoy that sunshine!

Evening Out the Environment

Bike month helps promote how everyone can pitch in to help the environment. Even if you’re biking to school, you are helping bring down the pollution that is obviously having dramatic effects on the world. Air pollution is the most common form of pollution and by getting your family to stop driving and start riding a bike, you can do your part in helping the World improve the air quality.

Count Down those Calories

Cycling isn’t just good for the environment it’s good for you too. Riding a bicycle burns calories and helps keep you in shape. Not only does it improve your physical health, but also your mental state of mind. Knowing that you are doing something good for you and the environment can really help you be a happy person.

Share the Sunny Summer

So get into that shed, and take out that rusty bike. Slap a nice coat of blue paint on it. Load up your iTunes with a bunch of songs. Grab a group of friends to bike-pool to school. Set-up a bicycle date with the boy you have a crush on. Whether you’re a kid learning with training wheels, a future sponsored BMX trickster, or just a normal fun-in-the-sun-child, get on your bike and ride this May.

the man-made construct of "time" is a measure of several factors done for societal organization. make no mistake, though. a man-made measure is not insignificant, for "time" is passing. causes and effects. histories. we are constantly moving, and can never go back.  the earth's rotation today is not the same as the one tomorrow. our bodies are growing. our bodies are decaying. things are moving, things are changing, evolving, happening. time, the concept of it, is not an illusion. we will never stop progressing. time is progression.

i have had several friends who have cut themselves. i have almost done it, but more out of curiosity towards how it might feel- for empathic or sympathetic reasons. in a deluded way, i think that it is. a cry for attention. but i don't think that is a bad thing. human beings depend on social interaction. we are social creatures. by cutting, putting a physical show of emotional hurt, it's somewhat of a call for help. it's like crying through blood, something far more serious, much like the pain that leads someone there. cutting itself is very dangerous and terrifying for the people that love the cutter. and this is another reason i think cutting is a cry for help- cutters know that. they know the attention that they'll get, the backlash, the possible hate or obsession others will get over them if their cuts are seen.  but they do it anyway. i think if someone were truly hurting and didn't want anybody to know, they'd just suffer in silence, welling within themselves until they go insane. or show their pain through subtle actions.  y'know. the whole "the saddest people are the happiest" thing.
