Riding an Atlantis near the sunken city

Hi, I'm Eric Nye. I ride a Rivendell Atlantis in Covington, La., across the lake from New Orleans.

I ride my bike for exercise and pleasure. I also use it as my prime mode of transportation. I do all our grocery shopping and as many errands as possible on my bike.

Covington is a small town, but is also the parish seat; so it has a nice blend of urbanity and small town atmosphere. I shop at old fashioned stores in town on my bike rather than drive to big box stores.

When I do start my car, it's usually to drive to a trombone lesson in New Orleans. I usually take a bike with me and ride around Audubon Park when my lesson is over. Then I cut through "The Old Neighborhood" to Whole Foods on Magazine to shop before packing up the bike and driving home.

My Atlantis has dynamo-powered lights, fenders, saddlebags, a rear basket, and a small front rack suitable for toting watermelons or some other heavy object to balance the load in the rear.

I'll attach a photo of my bike and hope it goes through. Hope to hear from other riders. --Eric
