    Backers, Cross Bars And Handlebars.

    I used to love getting a lift on my stepdads bike when I was little. I would be on the cross bar or on the handke bars dependng on my age and trip. It was so much fun and I never felt scared. Well maybe a little. I always had to get backers off my brothers because they weren't...

    I got my first road bike

    when I started college as a gift to myself using some money I'd saved up from my job. It was an old 10-speed with lever shifters and a steel frame, bought used at a local bike shop. I didn't think I'd come to love her so much, but the past few years travelling around my city and...

    Boy, I needed that endorphin boost this morning.

    For those who read my other stories you'll know that for the last couple months I've been going through a separation and among other things, the bike has been good therapy. I hadn't ridden since Sunday and really need that ride today, both mentally and physically. Today was...

    The Next City Over For My Driver Course Today

    Yesterday I walked to the neighbouring city for the first day of my driving course. We do have driving schools in this city, but I liked the program in the neighbouring city the very best. I take my responsibility as a driver very seriously. My life and health, and even more so...

    And I Detest My Mother!

    I'm in semi-love with my new bike. I brought it home last night. Honestly it's like bringing home a puppy if it doesn't work out return it. I'm said to say it shouldn't be that way. Yeah, so my mom is such an arse she had seen it yesterday and she did her usual "how much did it...

    I think this is probably the slowest start to a

    season I've ever had. Apparently God thought it would be funny to send Virginia a real winter this year. I've posted on several occasions how I hate the cold, so I'm at least partly responsible for my lack of miles so far, being the cold weather weeny that I am. However...

    Riding my bicycle cools down my emotions.

    I love riding freely and without trying to keep up with speedy folks. I ride fixed gear, road, and mountain. Nothing beats the adventure rides with good music. I clipped my friend a couple of times and got hurt pretty bad but we're still pedaling. I used to be apart of the...

    Ahh, Fall

    Hate it. The only season I hate more is winter. For me, there really is no off season on the bike. Technically I ride all year, although as we creep ever closer to winter, there are certain days when you just can't get out. Or can't get out early. And unlike most of my...

    I've been doing the urban commuting thing on my

    bicycle for the past month. In the morning it feels really good I have to say. The ten mile mostly uphill ride home when its 95 with the humidity in insane rush hour traffic, now that's just an experience.

    Bicycles are a big part of my life.

    Always Loved Bicycles

    When I was still very young I never needed to have training wheels to learn to ride. My father said "PEDLE FAST". SO I DID and away I went and never looked back. That first bike was a single speed old thing. My next bike was also a single speed dragster with the long banana seat...

    N+1 Bikes

    There's an old biking saw that the correct number of bikes to own is n+1, where n is the number of bikes you now own, until n=s-1, where s is the number of bikes at which point your S.O. leaves you.Of course if your S.O. is also a cyclist, "s" can be a very large number. My wife...

    But it is much better than walking since I'm not old enough to drive.

    ago. I like being able to errands without having to use my car. I've rediscovered the joy of riding just to ride. I know it's not as safe but I love to ride around 6 to 7 pm until dusk. I live by Lake Michigan and the water turns four or five shades of blue. It's been a...
