I ride my trusty steed to get to places in and around Cambridge. I ride to work every weekday, to the shops, and to band gigs. I also like to ride my bike just for fun sometimes, on rides between 15 and 50 miles.

comment Recommendations for low-maintenance “town” bike
Hub gears don't have to mean heavy bikes. My 8-speed-hub Ridgeback town bike is less than 1 kg heavier than the sporty derailleur hybrid it replaced.

comment Why is wearing a skin suit in the Tour de France risky?
The risk is that if he doesn't win, it'll make him look like a bit of a berk.
