Bike Commute Diaries: Lighter Than Air

14 Mar

When you trade the sturdy city bike you ride to work every day for a road bike you ride after work, you feel like you’re soaring into flight, right from that first pedal stroke. And maybe you are. Happy Daylight Saving Time!

    I just bought my first road bike… holy moly do I get fast without even trying… riding a 30 pound plus bike every day must be a great workout.
    Although I almost threw my new bike through my mud room because I lifted it like I would a heavy bike and it went flying :D

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
