The Weekend Bicyclist

The Weekend Bicyclist

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

Q: “I bought a new bike came equipped with two big sprockets in the front (chainrings), and nine gears (cogs or sprockets) in the back. Okay, so what does that mean to me?”

“How to identify and shift derailleur gears” is a common and important question for new cyclists, so I decided to write a post about it.Read More Button
