Got myself a full suspension and jumped back on the trails. where I live I have a ton of trails to choose from. And they are mostly uphill (ha-ha) Anyway the first few days I sucked. I rode through the pain, the soreness but now I ride because I am addicted to it but also it's a release for me. it feels like I can pedal away the anger, frustrations, the bullshit that I can't deal with. I believe people ride for different reasons and I ride to "recover". The answer is yes for me.
Sweet. Endorphins and seratonin beat lithium, etc any day of the week.
