biking...

Now, I know I've only had my new bike a couple of days. But, I just really love riding my bike. Am, back me up on this: Riding your bike is so much better than driving. Aside from the obvious health benefits, you notice more - the neighborhoods, the flowers, etc. People say hello or give you a friendly wave. It's just nice. I've been riding my bike to work. Last night, Kyle and I rode our bikes to go water a friend's garden and flowers (they're out of town). It's just a more relaxing way to do things. So, get on your bike today and ride it. Having said all of that, I'm in my car at the first sight of rain...

I do agree! I love riding my bike, especially with the nice weather. At night I'll casually ride home and enjoy everything. But when it rains...!

See, if Am says it, it must be true.

I also agree. I love riding my bike. I used to take day long trips, just trying to find new things you would miss in a car.

It's much tougher to ride to work now. It's a 30 minute drive on hilly roads...

A friend of a friend of mine once rode his bike from the U of M to Kenosha for Christmas. Lucky for him it was a mild winter. Its like 400 miles. He got a ride back though.
Way to go Brad... I don't think he ever graduated. Last I heard he worked in a bike shop. Remember those ear bleeding comercials..."Erik the Bike Man."? It should be Brad the Bike Man the double B's makes it happen.

That's craziness.

Kyle and his dad are planning on riding their bikes to Devil's Tower and back - about 100 miles or so total. Not 400, though. That's just nuts.

Glad he's still alive.

I agree. The helmet sucks. I don't wear mine too often. But, I don't go through much traffic either. Is that a good excuse?
