How to Get Over our Intimidation of Biking around town.

Carmel Wroth and Waylon Lewis Bike Stylish to Open Studios

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis Presents

Reasons bicycling every day of the year is amazing:


1. (Almost) Free. Buy a used bike, get it tuned up and get started.
2. Save money on car insurance, parking, gas.
3. Daily commute turns into exercise time.
4. Reduces stress.
5. Creates community.
6. Choose thicker tires and have an upright bike posture so you’re comfortable riding.
7. Get a bike with three to eight gears.
8. Have good gear: lights, gloves, basket, fenders, chain guard, combo lock, bell—ding ding.
9. Bicycle around town with a friend, who is comfortable biking, to find fun, routes that work for you to your favorites locations.
10. Be in the present moment while biking (and the present moment is so fun!)

I am really not much of a biker, but I biked to teach my yoga classes all summer and it felt GREAT!!! I want to try to do more.

I agree with everything you say and I miss riding my bike as much as I used to. However, after too many near misses we have limited our bicycle riding to the bike paths. Drivers are too distracted. Even my "safety" yellow shirt didn't help.
