    Commuting while sick

    Sniffles blossomed into a full blown lung infection. That was it. If I can't breathe, I can't exactly bike. Spent three days at home trying to recover. Still having coughing fits so I'm just going to...

    My old route was a happy one for almost half the distance just because it was on a nicely manicured trail. And then I started having a lot of run-ins with skunks one year so I just rode in on the...

    My old route, my old bike, I knew I could trip all the induction loops and therefore would stop at each and every light. New route, new bike and I can't get a single light to detect me, so I'm left...

    I've had 'em closer than that, but yeah, that's it (I'm pretty sure that's enough). My point is that this truck is a rolling billboard representing the company. Driving stupidly may not be a good...

    The power of a cam

    Yesterday, on my ride home, I was cut off by a dumpster bin hauler. Long story short, I uploaded the footage to my YT page and sent the link to the company. Within hours I received a written apology...

    I had the same issues as you with my first commuter. Too upright, too heavy and too slow. But I didn't want to settle when it came to switching from a hybrid to a road bike, so I saved my money until...

    Stacked flats.

    About a year ago I was riding home, heard the clang of something metallic rattling in the street and suddenly my rim on concrete. I was close to one of my school sites, so I limped...

    Derailleur meltdown

    It's the one thing I apparently don't have the patience or understanding to do properly. After five hours of how-to videos, written guides and fiddling with tiny screws, I'm about to destroy my bike....
