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.


  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.

    It was bought at a very different time in our lives, when I was working and DH got an employee discount on all GM cars.
