I'm really excited about this, as I've been needing another bike inspired piece of art to compliment my newly purchased oil painting of a serene, yet pensive, Tom Boonen:
Writing you from Nottingham, UK! I know this is a cycling blog, but were you aware that England will be playing the US in world cup football on Saturday? Prepare to have your collective bums thoroughly whipped! By the way, thought you might appreciate a picture of me on my bike!
I am a huge advocate for commuting to work by bike and try to encourage those around me to do the same; so much so that I frequently let the people I work with take my bike out to run errands. However I get sick of seeing the paint job of my vintage road frame nicked and scratched from my co-workers not practicing safe cycling. So I wrapped the entire thing with old inner tubes. Do you think this will provide enough protection?
I recently had a bad crash on my bike which really deformed the rear fender. I thought it was trashed but was surprisingly able to bend it back into shape by squeezing it between my thighs. I just thought I would pass the tip along to your readers in case they found themselves in the same predicament!
I've been thinking of joining the CBC (Columbia Bike Club) race team but stumbled upon this photo on their website which has me a little worried....I'm not sure I would fit in?
Good luck to all the folks racing in St. Louis this weekend....be safe!
