A Mindful Cyclist: Cognition and Cycling in Milwaukee

People have numerous reasons for using a bicycle as a primary source of transportation -- protecting the environment, caring for their health, urban congestion, economic savings, to name a few. But the one reason that stands out for Dr. David Howell is the development of one's thought process. Can biking provide the solitude needed for daily life? In "The Descent into Happiness", Howell explores how bicycle commuting and bike touring serve as a vehicle for mindfulness.
