Cycling is something that brings me pure joy and helps me forget that, if even for a few moments, that I am someone living with Multiple Sclerosis. For me, that can be one of the greatest benefits – not to be consumed by life with a chronic illness as I fly by the ocean waves, pedaling as hard as I can, on my bicycle. It is pure happiness.
Certainly there are days when I cannot ride, those days when the fatigue kicks in full blast. I simply rest through these moments, reminding myself that tomorrow is a new day and on that new day, if I can bicycle, I bicycle.
