i love writing a haiku- always have- you know, 3 lines with 5/7/5 syllables per line respectively. anyway, i wrote a few cycling haikus last week and thought i'd share them with you...so here goes:
there's something i must confess
bicycles are best
there's so much to see
when traveling all around
go by bicycle
i looked everywhere
and finally found freedom
it was in a bike
getting around town
is much easier if you
safely ride a bike
i can't talk right now
going to ride my bicycle
talk to you later
i hope you enjoyed reading them as much as i did writing them! i'll bet you have one of your own to share...so let's hear 'em!!!
-side note: there's currently a contest somewhere on the interwebs where you can win a bike with the right picture & the right haiku... probably not too hard to find, but if you enter, don't steal my haikus- i'll bust you out for one, and besides it being a shitty thing to do, it's akin to the azzholes out there that are stealing our images and selling them as their own- ie: a shitty thing to do, so please don't. however; if you would like to reprint them or repost them, please ask- i'll more than likely say yes!!!
stay hydrated- it's hotter than a...we both know, so let's leave it at that! now go ride...or write!

So it's ride your bike to work week. I work from home, so i'll just go for long rides everyday. Cole has his sweet workspace, and he rides his bike there- everyday. This is Cole's mom, Linda- she's rad & doesn't yell at us any more like she did 16 or so years ago!

It's been a long week. Lots of miles ridden, I finally won a long battle with AT&T, I'm gaining ground on my war with porcupines, still dealing with cancers, and riding more miles to forget about it.
But we've got a couple great products for ya to check out this week- Feedback Sports sent in their Sport-Mechanic Bicycle Repair Stand, and Pace Sportswear's CAT1 Pro Shorts. Just in time before your paycheck disappears!!!
Feedback Sports Sport-Mechanic Bike Stand
This came to me unexpectedly, and I'm glad it found my way, let me tell ya! It comes in so handy- anytime you need to make an adjustment just put it on the stand, and it stays put. Not only that, but the clutch allows you to rotate your bike 360 degrees. Totally cool.
I'm not sure how many average riders think about repair stands, but it's one of those things you never knew you needed, but now that you have it you don't know how you ever got by without it. Seriously- it's that kind of thing. Read More...
Pace Sportswear CAT1 Shorts
I've never been the spandex type (hence the stock photo!), but cycling shorts & bibs are totally the way to go if you ride frequently, are touring, and honestly- doing any riding at all. If you're like me, they'll be your secret best friend. I wear 'em underneath my pants/knickers/shorts/shants...pretty much under whatever I want, and you'd never know.
Right now, these are my favorite shorts hands down. My second favorite part about these is that they don't creep up my leg (something that drives me crazy!!!), fit great, and also tie at the waist if you want/need to. Read More...
If you haven't checked out the new shirt yet, now's a good time!
Have a great weekend- ride fast, ride hard...

We got some great stuff to review this week- A set of panniers came from Arkel, a nice box of goodies from Pace- including everything one would need to stay covered head to toe, and last but certainly not least, an awesome trailer from the folks at Cycletote! Leroy (one of our four cats!) totally dug the trailer!
And I thought I'd show you a little side view of the trailer- it hitches to your seat post and can hold A LOT! The inside can be taken out for a bare bones trailer, and it also came with a cover!
