English term or phrase: stay on the bike
I'm going to Miami, so I'll lay out in the sun and enjoy. Just eat and... just really rest but kind of stay on the bike, do something.

Is this some kind of slang term. None of my dictionaries will tell me.
Or does it mean just what it says?

It is from an interview with Mary J. Blige
