Lucky You

Where ever you are its’ got to be better than Minneapolis today. The gust of wind are wicked and the air temperature seems like minus -10 F. There are colder days but nothing that good gear can’t solve. Lucky you, down in the Bahamas where I was this past Sunday. It was 80 degrees hotter than Minneapolis today. Funny thing about that contrast is I saw more bicycle culture today than I did in sunny Nassau. A note to bicyclist and I don’t mean hipsters. Did you know that in the USA bicycle ridership is about 15 percent of the population and that 15 years ago it was about 25 percent? What those numbers mean is bicycling by people like myself may be increasing but no new riders are coming on board as older riders bite the dust. So pass the word to your non riding friends and family your sense of bicycling.
