    Commuting In The Rain

    I have never rode in the rain. I have thought about it many times, but I always chicken out. Riding in the rain seems very dangerous and I do not trust the other drivers on the rode. Where I live the traffic is horrible and most people do not follow the driving guidelines. I feel that if I rode...

    Tour De France - 2014 - My Inspiration

    How did you feel during the event? I felt like I was dreaming. It was so beautiful. I still stop and think about the event. I do not think that there is anything that is comparable to the rush I felt at the event. Personally, I do not think that I am good enough to participate as a biker in...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    Thank you! I will wrap it around the rear-wheel and frame. I watched a youtube video to make sure that the bike is chained carefully and to increase the safety of my bike. I did not know that it is a good time of year to purchase a bike. But it makes sense, because bikes are like cars. It's...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    I learned how to ride a bike on a rented bike as well. Where I live many people still rent bikes because they do not have the space to store them or because they do not have the means to own the bike. The idea of renting the bike is appealing because there seems to be less hassles. I can...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    @Froze I did not know that Ebay charged such a high shipping charge. I have been looking at craigslist, yet I do not know if it is a reliable source. I might simply have to go into a used bike store and find a reasonably price bike that does not look expensive. I might actually buy the lock and...

    Riding With Music In Your Ear

    I do not ever listen to music while riding my bike. First, it is a major safety risk for me and for those around me. I feel that it is important to hear everything in our surrounding area and to be able to hear any danger or warning signs. I feel that music is a major distraction while riding a...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    @Froze I cannot store the bike in my condo, because we don't have enough space. I had not even thought about purchasing a used bike. I think I might purchase a used bike and get a chain lock. Would you recommend purchasing the bike online or going into a store to purchase the bike?

    Helmets For All? Or Just Some?

    This is a very controversial topic that you have brought up: Freedom vs. Safety. Personally I think that the law should require all people to wear helmets, because in the long run we are saving lives. I feel like a helmet for a bicycle is like a safety belt for a car. We have laws requiring us...

    Do You Take The Bike Pump With Yourself?

    Recently, I got a flat and was practically stranded for two hours.Therefore, I think it is always good to be prepared, so now I always try to keep two pumps with me. Accidents happen unexpectedly and it is always good to have a backup plan. Also, you should always have your cell-phone fully...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    @pwarbi I agree with you, I feel that the cost of renting the bike will add up quickly. Normally, I ride my bike for about two hours. I think I will try out the renting service for one week and then see how I like it. We live near the beach and therefore there are a couple bike rental places...

    Better To Rent Or To Buy Bike?

    I am new to biking and I wanted your advice to see if it is better to but or rent a bike. I live in a condo and the bikes in our garage often get stolen, even if the bikes are locked. We have a local bike shop around the corner that rents bikes. The hourly rate for the bikes are between 6-7...

    Tour De France - 2014 - My Inspiration

    My husband and I went on our honeymoon in the summer of 2014. We were in Paris during the Tour de France. I had never been interested in bicycles before this time. However, being present in the Tour de France inspired me to try out this magnificent sport. I was able to learn the ins and outs of...

    Ladies, How Safe Do You Feel Riding A Bike Late At Night?

    Honestly, I would never ride out after dark. I just get scared to be alone and I feel vulnerable. I like to be safe and I do not feel safe alone at night. I would be more comfortable riding with a group of people at nighttime. I think that as a woman, it is my responsibility to make sure that I...

    Do You Wear A Helmet While Riding?

    I always wear my helmet. I live by the belief "better safe, than sorry." In my opinion, everyone should wear a helmet, because accidents happen unexpectedly. Helmets are a good precautionary measure and helps to protect our lives. A close family member passed away a few years ago from a bicycle...
