NDJR/20 Liters: Day 2
Today while riding as I got frustrated with a car that wasn't giving me much room on the road, I was reminded...
I love riding my bike.
I love working on bikes.
It's a hobby.
It's a choice.
I have the privilege of having ability to choose to ride (one of my 6 bikes) or drive my own car on any given day.
How many others don't have a choice?
When I was home from commuting I quickly grabbed a glass and drank some water, then had a coffee. Not even having a second thought that the water I was drinking would harm me.
For many in the world, 1 in 8 to be precise - water has the ability to give them life - also has the ability to kill them. But they have no choice, they take the risk.
This unsettles me and challenges me.
Miles today: 6 miles
Overall miles: 10.8 miles
140mi = $140 = 10 yrs of clean water for 7 people or 1 family
