I used to ride my bike everywhere, and I mean everywhere. I wasn't one of those fair weathered cyclists, I would bike all the time, mainly because at that time I didn't have a car or work full time at a job that I commuted to. I am embarrassed to say that now, I never ride my bike, and I mean never. However, I plan to change all of that this spring/summer (whenever that happens). Recently, I have been lamenting over not riding my bike. I miss feeling the warm summer breeze as I pedal, I miss riding along with my sweetie to dinner, or a party, or wherever we were going. Needless to say I miss everything about riding my bike. I work five days a week at a job 25 miles away so much of my time is spent commuting by car, but when I get home and on my days off, I still drive. Like the addition of this blog, there are going to be some changes this year in my life, and riding my bike is one of them. I may not want to ride my bike in the winter, but dammit I'm going to start this spring!

The new bars are a little improvement we'll make for now, but one day I have dreams of having one of the Pluto Dutch bikes from Republic. Here's a pic of one I love:
