Day 253: Cycling – Philosophy for Everyone

13 09 2010

Cycling - Philosophy for Everyone

As I was looking at Adventure Cycling Association’s Web site, I noticed a recent posted titled, “Biking Books That Have Recently Crossed My Desk.” One book description in particular caught my interest: “Cycling – Philosophy for Everyone: A Philosophical Tour de Force,” a collection of essays by notable figures in the cycling world combined with philosophers such as Aquinas, Socrates and others. The press release for the book describes it as “the first book to cover the philosophical territory of the cyclist lifestyle.” The book includes contributions from the areas of literature, kinesiology, cultural studies, and political science as well as from philosophers. Editors Jesús Ilundáin-Agurruza and Mike Austin “use humor, their passion for cycling, and their deep knowledge of contemporary issues, to illuminate us on the ethical issues related to success, women and cycling, and the environment.”

I’ve added it to my ever-growing list of books to read. Too many book and not enough time.

Today’s food journal:

— 1 cup organic low fat vanilla yogurt = 3 points
— 1/2 cup organic granola = 2 points
— 1 medium banana = 1.5 points

— Grilled cheese sandwich on whole wheat = 7.5 points
— Iced tea = 0 points

— Cheese quesadilla (whole wheat tortilla, fat free cheese) = 3 points
— 1 cup LF chocolate milk = 3 points

— Frozen fruit bar = 1 point

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!
