It’s been said that every day holds a reason to celebrate, which is especially true for Baby Boomers who either have already retired and moved into their dream home, or who have both their dream home and their retirement in their sights.
At Windsong, we’re especially fond of “Ride Like the Wind Day,” which is celebrated each August 23. We figure it’s a holiday created for folks like us and our family of homeowners, for whom Life’s A Breeze…
The holiday was actually founded to commemorate the first human-powered flight, a Gossamer Condor 2, built by Dr. Paul B. MacCready and piloted through a figure-eight course in California by amateur cyclist and hang glider Bryan Allen, on this date in 1977.
Of course, not everyone is into pedaling their way above the treetops, so Ride Like the Wind Day is celebrated any number of ways that allow us to feel the freedom and exhilaration of the wind in our hair, appreciate things that fly, or simply to enjoy the feeling of freedom that comes from accomplishing a task or fulfilling a dream.
Here are just a few ways Boomers can take part in the celebration:
Simply enjoying time outdoors on your wide front porch or in your private courtyard provides an opportunity to celebrate Ride Like the Wind Day, every day!
