It's about the ways you use your bike.


Normally, I live in Washington, DC. I moved to the nation’s capital in late 2009, so my bike and I have had some time to get to know the city. For the next few months, however, I’ll be living in [not sure where, actually].

For me, riding a bike started as a product of cost and necessity in Austin, TX. Soon riding led to tinkering which became a hobby. I’ve been slowly modifying and upgrading my ride for the last five years or so, as well as toying with side projects along the way. So far, I’ve built one road bike, two touring/comfort bikes, a single speed, and my baby.

I tend to ride about 30-40 miles a week, though that’s mostly to the train station and back, and running errands around town. When I have the time, I like to go on aimless rides around DC on the weekends. This is a swift step in a new direction since Austin, where a bike was the only way to get around for those of us to choose the car-less way, and where 15 or 20 miles a day were just a given. However, I do appreciate the hybrid commuter skills I’m acquiring–bikes on the metro, which buses carry bikes, and the like.
