The New York Bicycle Commuter-Nick James

We asked Nick James of New York City to share his commuting story with us and below you’ll come to see that this guy is hooked! Since you asked… It’s hard to live in New York City and not be at least marginally aware of the bike culture flourishing here. In September of 2005, after […]

Off The Streets to Off Roads

This past weekend I organized my company’s “team builder.” And the turn out was overwhelming since my coworker Justin and myself we’re the only ones that showed…no I’m not bitter…Anyhow, we decided to go to one of my favorite trails in Fontana Ca, Southridge. I was riding my Giant Warp and Justin was riding the Fezzari Abajo […]

Kayaking Down the Verde

Yesterday, spring time was beckoning and so was my roommate Chris to join him and his friends on a Verde River adventure about an hour South of Flagstaff. I had never been before but decided that I definitely could use a day off to float down the river of life. We met up with Elson […]

Getting High Off Your Bike

Check this article out…apparently endorphins have the same chemicals as marijuana. No wonder why we’re all hooked on riding our bikes! The good thing about it is we don’t get the munchies right after a ride… Move over, endorphins. Post-exercise euphoria may actually be the result of naturally occurring cannabinoids–the same family of chemicals that […]

There were so many times where drivers drove me crazy! I can recall in a week of commuting that each time I got on my bike, there was an occasion where I was almost struck by a car. In fact it happend so much that I had come to expect it every time I got […]

We would love to hear from you

Would you stop?

So you’re running late, and you’re biking to work. Up ahead you see another commuter broken down. Do you stop and offer your help or keep pedaling?

What Would You Do?

So you’re at a 3 way light. Your lane doesn’t have any traffic to the right of it. Do you go when the light is red knowing that no one can hit you from the right side and that the cars on the far left lane are making a left turn?  

Riding with headphones

A comment in our post of ‘To pod or not to pod’ brought up an interesting question: Is riding with headphones legal? Being a California Commuter, I did a search on the California Vehicle code regarding this matter. Here’s what I came up with: 27400. A person operating a motor vehicle or bicycle may not […]

Tights or Baggies

So here’s the deal, I’ve worn both baggy and tights to commute to work. However, I get more stares with the tights than baggies. But at the same time, I feel too dressed up for biking when I where the baggies. Sometimes I’ve worn my tights underneath a pair of cords. So the question is, […]
