More Rider Comments

“I broke my left pedal on yesterdays ride. I will blame uphill pedal torque and the wind. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! :-)” – OTR

“I used to ride regularly, but haven’t ridden my bike to work for 8 or 9 years!!! Since then I have thought about bike commuting, as it is a great use of my time especially with a couple of young kids, but never got my act together to do it. That is until now, and I couldn’t be more stoked! What a great way to be outside! Hope you are having a great day! Cheers.” – DCNR EcoCyclists

“Runnin’ reds and killin’ peds” – Premium Rush (2012) – DETR – Psychopaths

“How can there be a headwind in every direction that you turn?” – Allison MacKenzie

“Ready for some sunny weather🌞” – Redrock Dental Molarcyclers

“Oh the deep joy of a brisk morning ride to the south of town, as the sun rises on Freel Peak! (oh, and no traffic!)” – RCI Rowdies

“Half our team met at Schat’s and rode 4 miles to and from the office today then we all rode out to lunch. It was the first time some of them have ridden a bike that far in years and we laughed the whole time. Fun!” – Carson City Orthodontics
