Wow! We had so much snow this winter that I had to leave my bike stored in the basement. It was the first time in years that I couldn't ride in the winter although I saw some real courageous people pedaling in the ice and snow. This was just too much for me. But today the freedom came back. There's nothing like feeling the air while you create your own locomotion. Of course I would feel guilty not to do it as much as I can. Even if I own a car it's not an excuse to become lazy. Who knows I might even get fat :-)
Of course I want to have the smallest possible print on my planet's environment and that's why bicyle is part of my top 10 greatest inventions of all time. As a semi-professional athlete I also use biking as part of my training routine.
Part of living in Montreal is having to deal with people stealing bicycles. It's a pleague and that's why I have a real shitty looking 2 wheeler. It's not handling great but I always put a hundred bucks or more every summer to make it bearable without having to worry about its dissapearance.
So that all for now folks, I have to take off for my Footbag practice, which I'm gonna ride to...on my bike!
