Bicycle Commuting Blog Launch
It's almost a year now that I've been riding my bicycle to work on a regular basis. I decided to start a blog that has the goal of sharing some of things I've learned about bicycle commuting over the past year. Check it out: Beginning Bicycle Commuting: A value-oriented guide to getting to work on your bike.
From my first post:
I like to think I'm over the steepest part of the learning curve and might have some wisdom to impart on those who are considering trying to leave the car parked during the work week in favor of riding to work. Hopefully what I share will be helpful to at least one other person.
For those of you who commute on your bikes, feel free to contact me about becoming a contributor. I've learned a few things along the way, but I sure don't know everything. Also, I am in Fort Worth, Texas, so the weather here is rather mild compared to much of the country, especially during the winter. I'd love to get the insight of some of the real hardcore winter commuters on this blog.
One thing I'd like to get some help with right away is to have some different views on how to select a commuter bike. I've taken the approach of just modifying what I've got to fit the need, but I know there are some great bikes out there that can do the job right out of the store. If anyone wants to write a post about bicycle selection, let me know.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
