Thee Mow – cycling through life one smile per hour

My name is Jason Mower. I used to think life couldn’t get any better, as long as I had a beer in my hand and a friend to laugh endlessly with, I was living life. In my mind the only way to have a good time was to be partying all night, only to waste away the next day hungover – completely useless and unmotivated.

As luck would have it, I ended up getting a bike from a friend and decided to start riding to work. I began riding my bike to and from work just to prove a point to the people that said it was too far to ride every day and that I couldn’t do it. I found myself only proving a point to myself. I didn’t need to drink to have a good time or to unwind. I found that my bike was a great source of fun and release.

I have truly found the little kid inside me that used to have fun riding his bike to friend’s houses, grocery stores for candy or just to be out having a great time with the freedom that comes from riding a bike and enjoying your surroundings.

I am incredibly happy knowing that when I smile it is real and not alcohol induced. I hope more people can find the happiness that I have found. If you think it’s not inside of you, just believe you will find it.
It is my goal to help people find this happiness and help them realize it was in them the entire time.
