On Rhythm and Movement



By Sharla


I haven’t biked long-distance in years (six to be exact). 


Yet, despite not having gone in a while, there was something about biking that I’ve always appreciated. Aside from it being the perfect activity that allowed me to compensate for my poor navigational skills, bodily coordination, and straight out nervousness, biking has been an activity, or exercise, that has allowed me to integrate my body, mind, and soul. It isn’t just to simply get some cardio in, it’s about finding yourself among unfamiliar terrain. 


With seven months into quarantine, I decided to hop on my old bike and ride around the city again [with my mask of course]. 


As the ashes of northern California fires have clouded SoCal’s  sky, the early Tuesday morning was, of course, quiet. And as it always is with biking, I tune into my surroundings so that I don’t lose balance in between those cars parked and those moving to my left, or fall by a pothole or crack in the ground. I try to establish a sense of rhythm in order to gain momentum.


Whether your driving down the road with your window down, jogging around your neighborhood, or walking - the farther we go, the more likely, it seems, that we are to establish a sense of rhythm.


With biking, it’s a paradoxical activity for me -- on one hand you don’t know where you’re going most of the time, and yet, you get into the rhythm of not knowing. 


As human beings it’s natural to want a sense of rhythm. But biking has taught me that rhythm doesn’t always look like a routine. Sometimes we need to get out of the certainty of our normal daily routine to keep evolving. We need to become who we’re made to be. 


But every now and then, there are surprises throughout our daily routines that disrupt our list of goals which we like to meticulously plan down to the minute. The surprises, which can often seem like disruptors, remind me time and time again, are really opportunities to check ourselves and the rhythm we’re going at. They are moments that propel us to ask: what are the real goals are we going for?


My goal with biking isn’t to race, and it’s certainly inevitable for me to keep pace with cars in my beach cruiser (which by the way, isn’t made for streets!). But to even try to is certainly fun, and I invite you to also try something challenging in whatever season you are currently living. With that, I leave you with some questions!: 


What are some things in your routine you’d like to change? 

What are your goals?

What is one thing that has been challenging you, and what can you do to adapt and come out more resilient?
