We know that feeling of floating

I’m sure this has made the rounds but I am just seeing it now, images by Zhao Huasen playfully show cyclists ‘floating’ through their daily lives. That’s about right!

How to roll…

Though this is Paris, so that bike trailer had a manicured little dog in it who was happily eating his meal at the cafe while this photo was taken.

The Groupon ad I got today? A great deal on something called “Aquabiking”. This link explains all (in French), and it looks like it was even featured in French Cosmopolitan. Under point 5 there they explain, with what I imagine must be hyperbole with regard to her cellulite, that riding a bike underwater burns twice the energy of riding an ordinary bike. In addition the touch of the water helps improve drainage and blood flow.

All this may be true, but these people aren’t going anywhere! Well, as they say here “À chacun son goût” (to each their own).

Each day I am saddened by the gradual destruction of the Doggie Porteur.

First to go was the Brooks saddle with the hammered rivets. Next was the Campy derailleurs and shifters. Just last week it lost the wheels, sustained the frame damage and broke the chainring, and lost its brake calipers.

What a sad waste.

First Real Bike Ride in a LONG Time!

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

It’s been too difficult to post about biking when I haven’t been able to participate but yesterday I got to Bike with my Boys in Bois de Boulogne. I was thinking B-B-B as I sang with joy the whole time, and I was not the only one loving it!

I have a Backlog of posts to share, but wanted to share a photo with people I know would understand my elation!

It’s been too difficult to post about biking when I haven’t been able to participate but yesterday I got to Bike with my Boys on a Brompton in Bois de Boulogne. I was thinking B-B-B as I sang with joy the whole time, and I was not the only one loving it!
