What kind of cycling EZ?


Hello EZ, I get the feeling you are into all kinds of bicycling ; but wondering if any particular kind is your favorite? Signed Eric

Hello Eric, thanks for your email and the answer to your question is… Randonneuring!Thumbs up Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring.

Admittedly, I have not actually done any of these kinds of events; but they are the particular bike direction I’m really hoping to move into,Fingers crossed in the very near future. I like the fact that you technically are not competing with anyone; just yourself, the road course and the ultimate reward of completing the event in reasonably good shape.SmileI have a lot of fellow bicycling friends that are total fanatics for this kind of bicycling philosophy and I have never heard any negative issues about it. For anyone interesting in reading more about this; here is the link to read more about these FUN and healthy events.Thumbs up

Bent trikes just don’t work for me… :-(((


Hello EZ, I see a post in the BROL forum about the popularity of trikes. Have you ever thought about adding one of them to your collection. Signed Janna

Hello Janna, thanks for your nice emailThumbs up and good question. I have tried numerous trikes and the ride was a pleasurable one; BUT… I’m just not a trike guy at heart.Sad smile Add to that; my rather LIMITED living space and a NARROW door way into my little man cave; makes any consideration for one of those beasties, rather impossible. I too read that article and it’s a good one. For anyone who's into trikes or wants to read up on them; here’s the BROL link to read.Thumbs up

Something new! Bicycle tattoos 4 U!!! :-)


Hello EZ Biker, I really enjoy your site; especially the bike porn stuff. Have you ever thought about showcasing “Bike Tattoos” on your site? I’m sure there’s a lot of them around and imprinting something almost permanently on your body, seems to portray a REALLY dedicated cyclist. Signed Erica

Hello Erica, thanks for your email and providing a GREAT idea about bicycle tattoos!Thumbs up I did a “Bing” (Starting to prefer Bing over Google these days…Surprised smile) and there are tons of them around. I’m actually surprised about this, as I always figured tattoos consisted of skulls, hearts, Mom, Dad(?), demons, girl, guy faces etc. Obviously my desire for is to promote ANYTHING and everything “HPV” bicycle related.SmileLastly, given the fact that a lot of the tattoos ar fairly narrow in size (Arms, legs) look for that lovely 2 for one tattoo posts, as you see in this present post.Thumbs up

Headphone suggestions? NOT from EZ Biker! :-(((

imageHello EZ Biker, I ‘m wondering if you can suggest the perfect headphones for me to purchase, so I can enjoy my tunes while I’m on my bike. Signed Chuck

Hello Chuck, thanks for your email; BUT… you probably are NOT going to like my response,Surprised smile concerning this. I did a previous post on this subject; (Here’s the link to that post) in which I personally don’t use any kind of headphones, nor do I recommend anyone doing likewise. Now 3 years later, the motorize vehicle traffic verses the HPV bicyclist, has gotten even WORSE!Broken heart Hostility towards cyclists continues to be a growing issue and thus, you really need to give your undivided attention to all areas, when bicycling, regardless as to where you are riding. I can likewise offer you a similar situation in this, in that of smart phone use.Mobile phone People continue to be totally consumed in glaring at their phones (Even without music playing) and are clueless to their surroundings. Accidents in epidemic proportions continue to occur where people have walked into others, in front of vehicles, fallen off of curbs, walked into doors; the examples are endless. Using headphones while bicycling is a distraction, you honestly need to avoid at all costs. As sad as this may sound; bicycling like operating a vehicle is a 100% constant concentration process; as things change quickly and continuouslyLightning around you.Nerd smileMy personal suggestion; would be to ditch the electronic garbage and go enjoy a nice peaceful bicycle ride!Thumbs up

Like Wow Man, some groovy peddle machines will be around soon!
