Welcome to Bicycling Is Better

The price of gasoline just jumped ten to fifteen cents over the past couple of days. Perhaps you're concerned climate change is human-caused and you want to be part of the solution. Maybe you're sick of sending your hard-earned dollars to oil-exporting countries that don't respect human rights. Maybe your waistline is getting a bit out of hand or you're just tired of feeling tired. Or it could be that you feel like the folks in that Police song: "Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes/ Contestants in a suicidal race."

Bicycling might not solve any of those problems, but if it helps you feel like you're doing something positive about them...well, that's surely a very good thing.

I hope you'll join me every so often to learn about how you can make bicycling a bigger, better part of your life. I'll be posting about bike selection, basic skills, safety, accessories and equipment, and neat tips and tricks to make your cycling life easier.

Have a question? Post a comment and I'll post an answer.

And if you like what you see here, please pass it along!

I like this blog.
I do have one thing to add: invest in both a floor pump AND a pump to carry on your bike (or a gas inflator) even if you can't fix a tire yet, you will be able to pump up your slow leak enough to complete that ride to work, or home without having to call in the cavalry. Fixing a flat might be the first maintenance task to learn.

Thanks Rigger! As you'll see, I made some changes to the How to Buy a Bicycle post. I'll post something on how to fix a flat when I can shoot either photos or video.
