I rode one of the kids bike a couple of years ago. But where I live there is no sidewalk and the traffic is very heavy and peoples drive crazy.

Living in Hawaii, I can ride pretty much year round. I have an inexpensive Walmart special, but I am looking forward to an up-grade!

I was just talking about bringing my bike into the shop to have it checked. Still lots of snow and ice but I so want to get out on my bike. Nothing like it.

Training for event like Tour de Cure is very motivating. Don't overdue in the beginning! And if you can ride with a group, including people who are better riders and who can teach you, is great. The first ride I went out on I could hardly do 2 miles. Yesterday I did 28 miles and wasn't tired at the end. Here's advice I heed: go easy when it's hard, go hard when it's easy.

i live in beijing so bikes for many people are their main form of transportation. there are cycle lanes everywhere and the roads are really great for cycling on. i ride everyday to work which is usually only around 12 minutes each way, but its great fun trying to weave in and around the huge traffic jams. I spend my journey laughing at people crammed into hot cars going nowhere fast . its a great way to see the city ( if anyone visits you must rent a bike) and i love watching chinese life as i breeze on by. not sure what i`ll do during winter though....hmmm

There's just something about zipping along really fast & then coasting for a ways that is amazing! I love getting up speed & biking really hard down hills & then gliding on the flat fora long ways. I don't like the bugs that like to fly in my face, but that's the only thing I DON'T like about biking. It's a wonderful way to get further than walking'll take me. I can stop & look at the scenery if I want, &, since I don't listen to music when outside, unless others are playing it, I can hear the sound of the wind & those of nature as I go. I'm hooked on riding, & each ride reels me in even closer to the shore. It's so cool, & definitely my favourite way to go these days. :D

Cycling is terrific exercise, social and a great way to see the world. Also, eco-friendly.

Biking is my mode of transportation. I go to work, the grocery store, the gym, everywhere on it. Heres a little side effect- you will get massive thighs. Yes, it is all muscle and it's great for you. BUT I had to buy all new jeans with extra stretch not bc of the waist but bc my thighs got so big! :) Im not complaining just a friendly note to all those cyclists!

I live on a hillside (very steep) and on a busy main thoroughfare where people routinely zoom by my house at 45/50 miles per hour (yes, cars have hit houses...).

I'm hesitant to ride and don't always have the time/enthusiasm to load the bike up and go to the bike trail.

Maybe next spring...

In Jan.2009, I suffered a back injury. This acourse stop me from working and exerising. My hubby bought me a land cruiser bike and i rode it about a half a block.I suffered with a lot of pain that night, but I can't wait to do it again. I have always love riding and it kept my weight down. I wonder if it will do the same, since i can't really do anything physical. ANY advice ?

I started riding again about two months ago. At first I could hardly go one mile on the lowest speed. (I live in the country with dirt roads and lots of hills) Now I am up to seven miles and I can keep the speed between 14 and 17. I really enjoy it now. I usually see lots of deer and rabbits while I ride.
