With the encouragement of several friends, I have decided to start a blog. I do a lot of bicycling, and I think my friends are getting tired of my lengthy Facebook posts about bikes, so I’m going to put stuff out in the blogosphere.
Most of my cycling is commuting these days. I ride 6 miles each way from my home in East Windsor, NJ to the Princeton Junction train station. I then stash my bike in its locker, change my clothes, and hop on a train for the ride to my office in Manhattan. In addition to commuting though, I do a fair amount of bicycle touring, fast rides (solo and group) and I especially enjoy sharing my love of the sport with my wife and three children.
I’ve been commuting by bike for about 15 years now. The ride has varied quite a bit. I used to live in Michigan, then Indiana, and moved around a bit in each place. My daily commute has ranged from about three blocks to close to 15 miles one way. I’ve always enjoyed riding year round, but I’ve been most consistent since moving to New Jersey in August of 2012.
I’m not entirely sure what this blog will contain, so we’ll enjoy this journey together. If there is anything in particular you’d like to read about, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
