I Suck, You Suck, We All Suck For Cycling!

Hello, sorry I'm late, I was busy parenting! Hey, someone's gotta ruin these kids' lives. I'm also late in addressing People for Bikes's 2020 City Rankings Data, which I received under embargo two days ago, meant to address yesterday, and then forgot about.

Right Place, Wrong Fred

Last week I included that video of the enraged flyer-grabbing Fred in a post about my plastic bike.

At all ages, the benefits of being physically active outweigh potential... Continue Reading →

I Wrote Another Thing For Bicycling!

There's a scene in the "Bubble Boy" episode of "Seinfeld" where George and Susan arrive at her father's cabin after a long drive only to find it on fire. As Susan reacts in horror to the conflagration, George says to her, "I just realized you never gave me back the change from the toll." Anyway,... Continue Reading →

Knocking Around

Further to yesterday's post, another fundamental difference between the Jones and the Rivendell is that, while both beg to be ridden far and wide, the Rivendell is equally conducive to short, aimless wanderings close to home, which is what I used it for this morning: Way back towards the hindquarters of the Dachshund of Time,...
