My New Wheels: The Kona Paddy Wagon, 2015

April 20, 2015

I picked this beauty up Apr. 15th, and, well, I think I’m pretty much in love with it. Each new day I ride feels more comfortable and efficient than the day before. It almost feels too easy.

Biking for me is more about the functional aspect than it is a hobby. My bike represents an amazing alternative to taking public transit to work – and the fact that I’m getting exercise while doing it is an added bonus.

Biking to work means that I avoid the hustle and bustle of public transit, I arrive to the office feeling energized, and at the end of the day, instead of moving from one chair to another, I’m free to enjoy my trip home.

But the city isn’t the safest place to bike. At any one moment during a bike ride there are a so many different hazards coming at you – and rarely is a bike accident one where you don’t walk away with at least some skin missing.

I have my own set of skills and mindset strategies I use to make biking safer (beyond the obviously essential helmet-wearing, light-flashing methods we use) which I’ll be writing a more detailed post on within the coming weeks.
