When did you start riding your bike as a significant source of transportation? Why did you start? What are the top two or three things a city can do to make their roads more cycler friendly? Do you say cycler, cyclist, biker (dude), or...?
It was my sophomore year of high school. We lived 6+ miles out of town and I rode my bike back and forth 3 times per day to play tennis with my best friend (I had to be home for lunch and dinner) in the summer. I also rode back and forth between Gustavus Adolphus College and home after HS (26 miles).

Tacx is leader of virtual reality trainers, ergotrainers, cycletrainers, rollers, repair stands, bicycle tools, bottlecages en bottles.
This is the winter I have finally said, “No mas!” Outside of a few commutes, my early season miles are happening in our 1890’s dungeon basement on a Tacx trainer. I am guessing I will be a lot more diligent in keeping the litter boxes clean.
The game’s complexities can obscure a player’s favored shooting hand, but players, coaches and general managers realize how crucial it can be.
Shooting from your off hand used to be the norm. The only advantage I get shooting right hand is a slightly harder slapshot but i lose out on the quickness, accuracy, backhand, face off, and deke ability of shooting from the left.
