  • Inaugural Winter Trip On the New Ride!!

    After a few modifications to the new ride, she was ready for the open road this past evening.  Overall is went well, felt weird but good.  It was a really hard transition to go from a 2010 specialized road bike to a 1974 Huffy Mainliner Cruiser.  Based solely on age and type you can tell […]

  • LeBron James says he bikes to most Heat home games

    Oh my God, I hate LeBron James.  Rather than go through the reasons (most of them are completely irrational anyway) and have to back them up with evidence and/or conviction, I’ll just add this to the list of why I can’t stand this guy.   But, in the same breath, I understand that millions of […]

  • It’s Over!

    The search is OVER!  It took a while to find a bike to be the appropriate replacement for my old commuter that fit my budget as well.  In reality, I’ve got a list of bikes I’d love to get but my wallet constantly disagrees with that list. So it’s a classic Huffy with all the […]

  • Safest Time to Ride…After 10pm!?!?!?

    I was on my way home last night and began to ponder this question as I buzzed through the streets of Worcester.  It was about 11 o’clock, cool but not cold and I found myself with a nice tailwind. Overall a nice ride!  It’s these rides that make me reflect on the joy of bike […]

  • Is Looking Cheating?

    The Tour De France rolls into its final week and I’ve barely watch any of it, my fantasy team is a complete disaster and the crank on my commuter bike is still busted.  Needless to say I need a nice distraction from all this. That brings me to the question of the age-old past time […]

  • My Fantasy is 21 days long and involves spandex! Want to be a part of it?

    It’s that time of year again!  Tour De France time.  I only play one fantasy sports game each year and this is it.  You might not believe me but it’s a lot of fun and you don’t even have to be a bike fan.  Don’t trust me on this one, just sign up and try […]

  • Tough Commute After the Long Weekend

    The ride across town was especially slow this morning, my legs were just plain dead.  I had no pop in the old thighs.  At first,  I was a bit surprised but then a figure it out.  The answer is pretty obvious. This past weekend I spent a great few days in upstate NY just a […]

  • Seriously, You Need To Have One of These!

    If you plan to be car free and like me have only the most basic working knowledge of bike maintenance, you need a great bike mechanic friend.  I was just ridiculously lucky that my buddy Will turned out to be a bike wiz and super enthusiastic to help and/or talk bikes.  I don’t bring much […]

  • 4 Bike Laws You May Not Know About

    Newsflash!  You can’t run red lights or urinate in public because you are a cyclist and “buzzed” riding is drunk riding(in some states). Cyclists are protected by—and obligated to adhere to—many laws. But while most of them mirror vehicle laws, it’s easy for some rules to get lost in translation because, let’s face it, bikes […]

  • When is 55 degrees at 10pm, what do you do?

    You don’t read a god damn blog about riding a bike!  Get the hell out there with the rest of your “fair-weather friends” and go for a ride! Yeah, I resorted to calling you names even if it isn’t true, just to cover up my laziness and my inner fraud. The truth is, I caught […]
