Meet Mariella. She’s my bike. Yes, I named her. She’s special and deserved a name. She is one of the key components of my journey to wellness. She came into my life two years ago when I needed to take control of my life and find some form of fitness that I could commit to. I had no idea how much she would change my life. I love riding. I love the carefree feeling it brings. I had no idea how much being out on the bike for just 20 or 30 minutes in nature would change my attitude and anxiety level. Time to go, Mariella is calling me.
