This is an old image of me on a bicycle. I have always been a passionate cyclist, but this image was especially poignant, because it encapsulated a time in my life when I was more on the go than I’d want to admit. I like to think that this image was taken when I was on a bike with a very full bicycle saddle.
As it turns out, this image was taken not long before the first of my numerous bike accidents (which was caused by accident on a bicycle and not an accident on the street), which is why it’s so poignant, because it reminded me of the time that I stopped biking entirely. And, of course, it was also taken way before I became a cyclist. But that’s another story.
I can’t believe I’m telling you all of this. That’s because I’m trying to tell you all of this in the hope that you’ll be a better person and be more mindful about what you put on your body.
Cycling, by all definitions, is a very dangerous activity. It is also very, very entertaining. The most dangerous part of cycling is the moment when you’re on your own. You have no friends, no support system, and no one to share your adventures with. To be honest, I wish I had some of that back. I would have had more confidence and a better sense of adventure when I was a bike-riding teenager.
It takes a lot of practice to get good at riding a bicycle. For most of us, it takes years of practice to ride a bicycle and the best place to get it is in a gym. In fact, if you are serious about your cycling and want to get good at it, you need to sign up with a gym. The best ones are not the expensive chainsaw-wielding gyms where you have to sit in a tiny room for hours doing push-ups.
A gym, however, doesn’t have to be a “gym”. A nice, large apartment with a bike in it is your best bet. You can even get it at a bike shop. Even if you don’t want a bike shop, you can get a bike for free at Target.com.
This is a good article on the subject. Its about bicycle shops and I think there are more than a few bike shops that you can go to.
I’m not saying that you should go to a bike shop. I’m just saying that if you want to save money and not have to pay for a bike, get a bike for free. Just dont go to a bike shop.
We agree with the author who also said “bike shops are where the cashier gets the bike with the best price.
The above article is also a good read. Im a bike shop owner. I think it is awesome that I can get a bike for free, but just because you have to pay for a bike, it doesnt mean that you should go to a bike shop. I would go to bike shops to buy a bike, but I have a feeling that most bike shops would rather sell you an old bike that you can use for free.
