You may remember that back in December, 2012, I made a pledge that I was going to attempt to bike up Copenhaffer Road in York, PA. I don’t really know why I made this pledge, but I think it is because Copenhaffer is notorious around here within the cycling community so I thought I should at least try it.
Most bike shops in the area offer workshops that teach important mechanical skills, including how to change your tube. Unless your rides are going to consist of biking around your block 100 times, you should learn how to change your tube – and I highly recommend Kevlar tires. Give your shop a call and get the skills you need to be able to ride as far as you want to go without worrying how low you rank in priority compared to a football game.
It is important to pay attention to the weather before you go biking, so you don’t get stuck on your bike in the pouring rain without a jacket, where your feet and socks get completely soaked and rain water is bouncing off your helmet and covering your glasses, and you are freaking out that your iPhone is getting wet, as you try not to fall, only to come home to your husband and have him say: Uh, didn’t you check the weather?

In the interest of the public good and bike shops everywhere, I have complied a list of excuses you can use to get out of work, so you can put a few more miles in. These excuses come with no warranties or guarantees and you are using them at your own risk. Remember, the best way to get through any lie to say it with a straight face, which is easy to fake if you are on the phone and no one can actually see your face.

If we have a mutual respect for one another and share the road there will be fewer accidents and my biggest concern about biking on the road will be about how bad I look in spandex and not whether or not I am going to get creamed by a car.
When I’m depressed I like to go to my bike shop, Gung Ho Bikes, and get bike stuff. Bike stuff makes me happy. Yesterday I got a pair of very sexy bike shoes.
TweetI’m back from Florida and I am pretty sure my friends are glad. Not because they missed me, but because they were tired of me posting photos of my bike by the ocean on Facebook. Here is a photo of … Continue reading
TweetWhen I first started biking, I always biked by myself. Until my friend Penny Zech convinced me that I should try riding with some other people for a group ride. I was reluctant to do this because I figured I would not … Continue reading
