    One of my regular commuter bikes has a bell, but the other one doesn't. I realized earlier this year from the reaction of pedestrians that when I say, "Passing!" it does sound kind of like a yell.

    As an update, today marked my 35th consecutive work commute. I notice the further I extend this streak the more motivated I am to keep it going. Friday morning I rode through a rainstorm on the way...

    I would speculate that the difficulty of the challenge is based on where you live and how common it is for people in that area to live car-free. In larger cities where being car-free is more common,...

    Despite what I look like, I'm a runner. A few years ago while training for a half-marathon I told my wife that run training is really just getting more and more used to pain. :)

    This. 1500 miles is about what I expect from a chain. If it's beyond stretch limits replace it so it doesn't prematurely wear the cassette.

    It's fun.
    I'm saving gas/money.
    I get exercise.
