biking so much, try printing out a map of the area, pick a few points, and make a bike-O out of it. Looks like lots of interesting winding roads in your area; I'm sure you could make some interesting route choices out of it.
I don't hate biking, I just miss running
podcasts and listening to lectures have worked pretty well for me but a bike o also sounds like it could be fun
Good luck and have fun. Please be extra aware of other vehicles - even with a lot less traffic there are too many distracted drivers out there. Less than a month ago, a lady splattered herself into the back end of a stopped garbage truck just a couple houses down the street from my house. No excuse for not seeing a stopped truck with flashing lights, but too many people are watching their phones, not the road.
