From the most extreme mountain bikers to the most demure commuters, we’re all a family of cyclists. Sometimes we have different tastes, sometimes different styles and often different opinions, but we all share a love for the wind across our cheeks and the satisfaction of personal power.
I’ve been fortunate enough to be welcomed into the family of cycling with open arms, and here I’ve found not just a vocation but a personal passion. I’ve had countless riders stop to offer me a spare tube, some extra water, or just a tip for a more scenic route. Somehow we instinctively know to watch out for one another, celebrate with one another and, sadly, far too often grieve with one another. Families are never homogeneous and certainly never perfect, but they stick together through and through.
I’ve made countless friends through cycling and I’m looking forward to making many more. While our taste in two wheels sometimes differs, I consider you all part of the Bicycle Times family and I’m honored to be a part of it.
