Looking back on the year of 2011, my fondest memories revolve around utility cycling, new bikes, and bike camping!
Upgrading an old bike can be more complicated than it seems at first glance, as my search for a better handlebar setup for this old 10-speed demonstrates…
I’ve been remiss in my posting, so here are some photos from rides in the last couple months.
Sorry, but I can’t help it. This is an exciting time of the year. I can ride the same roads each day, and see new…
They may or may not be your thing, but flowers have the power to stop me in my tracks. If you enjoy looking at flowers, I think you’ll enjoy this post.
This is a great idea. It’s simple: just ride your bike every day for a month. Doesn’t matter how long or short, just that you ride. Check back here at the end of April to see stories and pictures!
I’ve now ridden over 25,000 miles as an adult cyclist (since 2004), which is just slightly more than the circumference of the earth. I’m ready for my next go-around!
My goal for 2010 was 5200 miles, which is an average of 100 miles per week. I reached that in November, and ultimately ended the year at 5600 miles.
For fun, I decided to refurb an old bike from my parent’s farm, a single-speed coaster-brake Western Flyer that I’d worked on and ridden when I was a teenager. The project turned out to take a little more time and effort than I’d hoped, but I like the result!
I’m excited: In just a couple weeks, I’ll be setting off on a little five-day self-supported bicycle tour! I’ll get about 325 miles in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas, and hopefully have some adventures along the way.
