Go Forth and BIKE!
Welcome to Happy and the Bike – a micro speck in the abyss of the WORLD WIDE WEB to muse about the wonders and wiles of biking! From the seat of my faithful two-wheeled companions, Frank (commuter) and Kika (mtn), I will account for you the daily delight and occasional oddities witnessed when going at life by two wheels.
My Skillz Aren’t Mad …
Spend some time riding with me (particularly when with Kika) and you’ll quickly understand how I’ve earned the biking pseudonym “the Precarious One”. Often getting my positioning ALL WRONG, I am more likely to smack into, tip over or fall off things than I am to successfully execute any legendary trick. I am a three-legged gazelle on wheels!
So what you won’t find here is any advice on how to improve your riding and certainly no tips on how NOT to mangle yourself. But maybe just maybe you’ll be entertained by someone who adores being on her bike(s)!
For the Love of Bike!
Besides the obvious benefits to health and the environment, biking just feels damn good. I absolutely adore the manner in which biking connects me to my environment, allowing me to witness life and my surroundings at a slower and more intimate pace than any auto could offer. Life on the two-wheeled wonder provides me with humility and gratitude in knowing that my own body can power me from one destination to the next.
Biking is my path to HAPPY. Ride along with us …
