CYCLING

The last four years or so I have got back into cycling way more than I ever was when I rode occasionally in the past.  Practice makes perfect.  Not that I am particularly fast or strong, but much more so than I was 30 years ago.  Many people are not made to run -- I know I am not.  Cycling doesn't bother my knees like running would. 

 

Lots of folks are concerned about the safety aspects of riding on Austin streets.  I say, ride defensively, use multiple bright lights when riding at night, don't ride certain streets when the drunks are out, and there is a LOT you can do to stay safe.  Check on the link to a bicycle safety course.  Much of what you might believe you will find out is different.  So here are some links and pictures.
