Cycling

I like all things cycling. Riding a bike / trike (upright or recumbent) and working on bikes. Especially working with creative solutions.

My “work-out” music

I know, listening to music while cycling is a touchy subject. A lot has been said about it on the net (even some seriously overheated debates), but it's a common sight on the streets and bicycle lanes these days. And yes, I listen to music while cycling too. Mostly on my morning commute that is. At 3:30 am there's not much traffic about, and other road users can easily be seen by their lights. So the music isn't that much of a distraction.

Because I have a bad back, I’ve mounted bar-ends on the handlebar of my trike to help me get in and out of my trike. (Or whatever you call it with a tadpole trike 😉  )   And believe it or not, it actually does the trick!  😀
