I call myself The Weekend Bicyclist because, well, I have spent the last 40 years juggling family, work and riding and I could only ride on weekends.  Clearly, I could only allot a small amount of time to riding, which I found possible only on weekends. Now, retired, I have made bicycling into a full-time hobby.
Bicycling in today’s world has so many more options than the one speed on which I learned to ride. Recumbent bikes, electric bikes, recumbent trikes, mountain bikes, spin bikes, and cargo bikes are more recent additions.
People bicycle for different reasons, such as:

  • Commuting to and from work
  • Taking care of Errands
  • Weekend leisure cyclist
  • Bicycle adventure/travel
  • Mountain/trail riding
