HELLO!  Hope this finds you all happy, healthy and thirsty for the cycling season to start! I am!
Thank you for being part of the Bikenridge Useletter.

Here we go!

The Dirt

Trail Etiquette. We all just need to get along … be part of the solution!

Trail Etiquette for all Users?  An excerpt: “We want everyone to have a positive experience, and if it’s a mixed-use trail, then maybe we need to ask the question, should there be changes or updates to the Trail Etiquette Code? Should trail etiquette apply to everyone who uses the trails, not just the mountain bikers?” (Read More)

cycling in tokyo imageI must confess, I am obsessed with the idea of bikes as the primary source of transportation. It’s possible and happening all over the globe. In Milan, Italy they are now fighting pollution by paying commuters to ride bikes.  Japan, a nation of 127 million people has 72 million bikes with 10 million new bikes sold every year.  Although Tokyo does not have the cycling infrastructure of some European cities, Japanese folks have shown that cycling works in Tokyo even if you have to jump the curb and ride on the sidewalk. Check out Japan’s underground bike parking!  With all that, I’m thinking a Big Cat Electric Bike would be a great source of transportation this summer!

Behind the Scenes

As you might guess, I am focused on getting ready for the season.  Trail Etiquette is the topic of many discussions. Be an advocate of good bike manners.  Be courteous and alert others as you approach with this Minimalist Bike Bell.  On a lighter note, this new washing machine is very intriguing.

It’s the start of another great season!  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read the Bikenridge Useletter.  What would be useful to you?  More ride information? The best Bike Shops? I want to hear from you!
