    Which do you prefer, and why? Hiking or biking?

    I've done huge amounts of both (and even more running - over 100,000 miles run in the past 40 years - and a fair amount of canoeing and kayaking). Biking gets you farther faster, but you don't really see as much, although long bike tours are addictive.

    I abandoned biking on the roads because it was too damned dangerous - too many drivers are inattentive, incompetent, or vicious. Now I hike in the woods two or three hours a day and run the trails two hours a day.

    If I were forced to choose among all of these activities, I'd go for the hiking. The slower pace and deeper immersion in my surroundings suits me best.

    Biking.

    Hiking seems like being a fly stuck on an endless flypaper plain ....
