For someone living in a huge city full of cyclists and fixed gear riders, I feel kinda lonely.
Perhaps its the fact that I stayed back a bit to work and all my friends are finishing their school years, perhaps its the fact that only one of them ever rode, and hes AWOL. But im growing kind of antsy. I ride alone to work and back, and in the evenings I hack around aimlessly practising track stands and listening to music.
Its nice, but I miss companions on two wheels who just like to ride with no real point to it, people who dont mind smoking a spliff and wandering wherever to sit around and chat and people watch. Adventures, that sort of thing. There doesnt seem to be anyone in my group of friends or coworkers who loves bikes and cycling as much as I do, let alone whod come out and play once in a while.
Perhaps im just a little high maintenance, but for a fixed rider in a metropolitan area...
Anybody else feeling a little left behind?
