Cyclists of all sorts have many things in common: we all get along under our own power; we all brave the elements and careless car drivers; we’re all doing our small part to better the planet (whether or not we consciously set out to); and we all love bikes and bike riding. The important thing isn’t what type of bike we ride, but that we have a bike that sufficiently meets our needs and keeps us out of our cars.
I’m excited about how the EcoVelo Gallery is shaping up. Thanks to you, it looks to be populated with an eclectic mix of practically every type of bike imaginable, all brought together by the fact that they’re being used for transportation. The only thing we’re missing is a unicycle (how about it Andy-1-Wheeler?), and maybe a high wheeler. Where else on the web can you find a blog that is so bike-culturally diverse?
As an aside, I’d like to say “thanks” to the recumbent riders who stuck with me through the transition to this new format. Having recumbents seamlessly intermixed with the other bikes here is fantastic. I believe it sends a message that recumbents are just “regular bikes” (which they truly are). Hopefully this contributes a little to debunking the common misconception that recumbents are difficult, “nerdy“, and only for the infirm.
