Ride on

I have been in love with bikes as long as I can remember. There are few things that bring as much joy into my life. I have been riding for 35 years now. I have ridden bicycles for fun and fitness but I love the beauty and efficiency of this machine for transportation. I have commuted by bicycle for the majority of my working life (23 years) and despite what a lot of my coworkers think it isn't all that hard. I like the idea of bringing bikes into people's transportation equations. It just makes sense in a world that is going too fast and burning itself into a hole it will never be able to crawl out of. I tell people different reasons for why I ride, it's inexpensive, good for the environment, good for me, but the underlying reason and the hardest to explain is that it is just so efficient. A bicycle doesn't have anything I don't need, no extra seats, the exact right amount of power, I don't feel like I have wasted anything when I ride a bike.  A lot of people think I'm crazy, I've been hit by a car before and really shouldn't have lived, I was back on a bike before I was walking with out a cane, I can't stop. I won't stop. I am so happy that I have raised childen that are in love with bikes too. Every time someone decides to ride instead of drive I really do think it makes the world a little bit better. Well that wasn't much of a story, just me on cycling...  Do well and ride on!
