Do you ride a cycle?

I lost my car in an accident about 6 years ago and found I didn't even need it, more hassle then it's worth.

I have two main cycles a Cannondale for long treks and singlespeed Surly for short ones.

Nope. Not in a while. I have a few friends who are really into it. Cycle everywhere. I like AC and being lazy. The drivers here are nuts too. I had a buddy get hit by a car like six months ago.

Been trying to find a cheap one for the last 2 months or so til I can buy another jeep. It's not a huge deal not having one, but it'd make going to friends houses and the corner store and such a lot quicker.

I just wanted to let you know that every time I see this thread, I think it says "light cycle"
Thank you, that is all.

Sometimes.
I have a mountain bike that I built in the early 80s starting with Schwinn frame kit.
I also have a 1957 Schwinn Phantom that was restored and powdercoated candy red.

I cycle when I can, my bike got jacked six months ago so the daily commute has stopped, but I have a buddy who lends me his mountain bike when we hit the trails, so that's cool.

I commute by cycle (pun intended) about 80% of the time...

right now, I'm using my old Balance MB with Gotham road tires. can't seem pull the trigger on buying a full-on road bike right now.

I had a bike once. Single speed, "hard tail."
My brother, his friend, and I were going to go riding around this construction site. To get there, we had to go on a short stretch of road between my house and the site. Speed limit: 55.
We pulled out on the road, and my brother and his friend quickly pulled away. I tried to keep up, by my short little legs just couldn't do it. I pedaled harder and harder, faster and faster.
Then the handlebars started to get wobbly.
Then, they turned 90 degrees to the direction of my travel. My bike stopped.
I didn't.
I flew over the handlebars, catching myself with my face.
I busted my lip open, and was bleeding everywhere. My brother stopped, ran back to me, threw my bike in the ditch, and dragged me off the road to safety. A van stopped, offering assistance. We said we were fine.
My brother helped me hobble home.

bicycling forever

I have started bicycling since 1981? 1993 my car was stolen and I have bought my first relatively nice bicycle ? since then I have 4000 miles per year in average, spending at least 30 nights in my tent summer time bicycling across the country ? all that keep me in best conditions, I can not live without it ?
