Okay. I have a confession. I don’t commute by bike because I have to. I’m not on a quest to save the environment, even though I believe that is certainly an important mission for someone… just not this guy, I always do what I can. I don’t commute because it’s the cool or in-thing to do. I commute for two reasons; I am a much more kind and compassionate member of society when I do, and because it makes me feel like a kid again!
If you are a follower of our blog and have read Turning the Inside Out — Part 1 and Turning the Inside Out — Part 2, then you know what my two-wheeled, big, green, pedal-machine means to my psychological and physiological well being. If you’re visiting us for the first time and have no idea what I am talking about… WOOOOHOOO! Welcome aboard and perfect timing!
So this blog post is a bit of a teaser, but that’s okay because I think you will enjoy what we have in store for you over the next several months. The months of April and May are very important to the bicycling community in Lexington, and across the United States. Locally, April ushers in the University of Kentucky’s Bike Week, as-well-as the fun and eventful build-up to Bike Lexington and National Bike Month which occurs in the month of May! If you’re as stoked as we are about these opportunities, just click on one of the links and you can check out all of the rad cycling challenges, events and fellowship that is on tap!
So over the course of the next few months we will make a really good effort in bringing you the “how-to’s” of bicycling. All information of course will be based on lessons learned from our own personal and professional experiences. We will look at tips and tricks of bicycle maintenance, our early journey through poor clothing and gear choices, types of pedal bikes, safe commuting, and the benefits of putting it on two wheels again. I’m excited! I hope that you will join us!
Get ready, get set… LET US RIDE!!!
