Change Your Life, Ride a Bike


What a perfect combination. Two of my favourite readers/friends have teamed up to co-author a blog called Change Your Life, Ride a Bike. Adrienne, pictured above and Meligrosa from Bikes and the City blog, below, are your hostesses with the mostesses on a fine intiative.

They wish to highlight how the bicycle has changed peoples' lives in some way.

"We look forward to sharing our stories, and even more, to hearing yours! Please, please, please send us your bike of change and life stories! Why do you ride? Where has riding taken you? How do you tackle the challenges of where you live to keep riding? Did you meet your spouse on a bike? Did you use one to get away after sneaking out of the house at night? Share your adventure with the rest of us."

Be sure to check out the blog. It's quite lovely and remarkable. And be sure to send in your own testimonial to the bicycle.

Cheers Adrienne and Meligrosa! I am sorry I just dumped my post on top of Mikaels here. We were writing in unison on this quiet sunday morning, haha. Anyway, I came to think about how me a my wife met, cycle included. I´ll drop you a line if you want.

We love the idea of a blog dedicated to how bicycling has changed lives and are looking forward to reading more! We too have recently launched a new site and it is dedicated to utility cycling, so we thought you might be interested - www.utilitycycling.org. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to guest post or become involved in some way. Thanks!

sounds lovely. but what on earth is "utility cycling"? in our neck of the woods it's just called riding bicycles. Great idea, but a case of "terminology folly"?

Adrienne Johnson said...

I will admit, that in searching for an adequate description of the type of riding I do daily, I found myself thinking " I am a plain, old, traditional cyclist". Thus my terminology- traditional cyclist.
