Why I ride

I ride because:
  1. I can get from A to B without spewing carcinogens at anyone who dares go outside
  2. My money stimulates more economic growth when 1/5 does not go to oil, cars, and loans
  3. My commute is my workout and my lack of any other ride home is my discipline
  4. 100 years with the 24 hour din of combustion engines is enough
  5. You don't know a city until you can see, hear, and smell it
  6. Everyone treats one another better when there's no steel or glass between us
  7. It gets blood pumping fast enough to prevent a host of diseases and make me thin quick
  8. Any mistakes I make while riding may hurt but will rarely kill anybody
  9. I never worry about parking
  10. It is fun even at night, in rain, and in snow

  1. Me too!

    I wholeheartedly agree with all of the above.

    Regarding #8, seeing roadkill always makes cars seem so violent.

  2. I agree these are great. I laminated these and post them in my cube. One might consider adding that cycling makes one a non-conformist, and non-conformists are the coolest because they just don't give a damn what others think, enabling them to live freely and accomplish much.

  3. How do you go about biking to work when it's raining? It sure is fun to bike in the rain...provided it's okay to go to work wet or you're not going to work. Isn't it cumbersome to wear all those rain-ger and carry a bag-full of work clothes and then change once you get to work?

    Don't get me wrong, i am not against it. In fact I want to know how and what you do so I can maybe bike to work as well.

    Thanks.

  4. Has there been a more relevant retro in Nike Sportswear’s catalog than the Nike Sock Dart these past two years? The 2004 woven gem had a bit of Nike Air Presto in its DNA but revamped things with an enviable translucent midfoot strap that was basketball shoes as every bit functional as it was futuristic, a form-fitting stretchable mesh upper, and one of the most comfortable rides in the game.NSW has since updated the silhouette with the Nike Sock Dart SE, a Kobe 11 premium offering that ditches the see-through strap for a solid color blocking. This “Midnight Navy” colorway even adds a marbled wool-like upper with a combination of White speckles throughout to help transition into the colder Kyrie irving shoes months. The bolstered material also sees a Dark Grey midsole speckled with Black to match the darker shade around this Sock Dart SE’s heel. What do you think of the look? Expect this pair to kobe bryant shoes arrive later this Fall 2016 season and stay updated on the latest release dates right here on Sneaker News.
    The Olympics are over, but it looks like the golden sneakers aren’t done yet. Nike Sportswear kyrie shoes is still going for gold a month later with this upcoming set of the Air Presto and Air Max 90 in matching black and gold colorways. Always a great color combination for sneakers, black and Nike Air Yeezy 2 gold coat each model, with the Presto receiving golden hits for its TPU components while the Air Max 90 gets metallic gold paneling with its tongue branding to match. Expect the black and gold set Nike Roshe Run of classic runners to arrive at Nike Sportswear retailers soon.
    The Nike Air Pegasus 83 is the latest silhouette to receive the trending “Night Maroon” color scheme for the fall season.This release comes built in Nike Hyperrev a combination of premium leather and suede covering its upper. Fully dressed in Night Maroon, the shoe is complemented with a Tan heel tab, White midsoles and Gum rubber outsoles.Take a closer look at the nike free flyknit Nike Air Pegasus 83 Premium “Night Maroon”
