May is Bike Month
Time to drag out that old rusty cruiser or brand new one and put some miles on it. Commute to work, ride to the store or just ride for fun. I got out my old commute converted ParkPre mountain bike and got it ready for monday. I normally commute to work almost all summer from May until October but haven't the last two years due to the smoke from the big fires 2 years ago and all the winds last year. I can't commute the rest of the year even when the weather's nice as the rural type road to my work is too unsafe on a bike in the dark. It's really not that safe during the summer but I feel better about being able to be seen. I'll probably get out my vintage (fancy word for old) mountain bikes and ride them to the store. One is ProFlex 857 with the old Girvin fork that I outfitted with all time period accessories (Ringle stem, seat post, skewers, and water bottle cages, and Kooka cranks). The other is a GT Ricochet in Tequila Sunrise outfitted similarily that my son rides.
