22 minutes ago Review: Principia Gravel 22TiTAN - pricey, but great build & ride quality, with suspension…

After 30 years of riding a helmet I found out last year why you *have* to wear a helmet when biking. A "stupid" fall that I wouldn't have thought too much of normally happened to have my head slide across a rock that was sticking out, and split and sliced my helmet.

Seeing everybody in Strasbourg ride without a helmet gave me anxiety. You don't fall until you fall / get struck.

Monday evening workout. Stationary bike at #LifetimeFitness. Normally, I ride a recline bike. Tonight, I tried a more traditional stationary bike. I think I prefer the recline bike. I did not like the angle of the pedals relative to the seat. I did a lot of work today outside. that might also explain some of the less than stellar results tonight. But the good news is I went to the gym and rode bike for an hour. #FitBy60 #Fitness #Cycling

Almost a decade ago, I visited the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and came across their bike exhibition. It was advocating for better bike infrastructures and was so thoroughly impressed of past photos and actual physical examples of former mail carrying bikes! Apologies for the crap photos, not the best phone I had back then.

Very short and unclimby ride today – though with a bracing wind on top of the hills, it still felt pretty tough at times. Rode to meet my wife and then we did some trails north of here for a few extra km. The little touristy village we went to visit was pretty much abandoned for the holiday, which was a surprise, but so it goes.

A smiling woman in a bicycle helmet, sunglasses, and a light blue bicycle jersey stands facing the viewer. To her right is a stack of signs, the top of which announces "Thompson Road," below that, the Skippack (Pennsylvania) township trail. Then a sign saying "No motorized vehicles." At the bottom is a small sign with a picture of a frog and a QR code for a local wildlife viewing activity called the Montco (Montgomery County) Trail Challenge. Behind the sign is a sign kiosk with a small roof, presenting a map of the area. Around it all are tall trees and a bit of blue sky in the distance.

When I was cycling (slowly) up a steepish road to get to the Wessex Ridgeway a chap on an e-bike went past, shouted that he was cheating, I replied something like "it's allowed" then he said "well I'm twice your age".
He was (probably) in his 60's
I wish I'd shouted "you aren't doing bad for 100!"
But instead I just felt pleased he thought I was half his age.
There's probably a moral to this tale, but I'm buggered if I know what it might be...

My 30 Day Health Reboot Challenge got me motivated to try running again. After a month of what would be considered "cross-training" if I were primarily doing running I was curious to see how important it was. I never thought it was unimportant but it was always the first thing I'd cut. Even with that understanding I was very surprised at the results of my first run. I'll be making changes to my training in general to help move myself towards running "races" again. #running #cycling #training #health

Day 45 of #Running recovery break with 25KM of #Cycling followed by a 6KM walk afterwards.

Five KM into my ride, I found people gathered around a cyclist that hit a Canadian Goose and crashed (the goose fled the scene). They were trying to decide if 911 should be called; I spoke with the cyclist, went through what happened, talked about where they were injured, made a quick assessment and called 911. It's interesting how training kicks in. #Ottawa paramedics arrived minutes later.

It may be underappreciated simply how fun it is to ride a modern electric cargo bike. We recently switched from an 2014 Urban Arrow to this 2023 Riese&Müller Transporter 65 and the developments in battery and motors really makes a big difference.

If you tried and perhaps dismissed one of these years ago, give them another chance.

I did get a technical issue. Not one I was expecting though.

I've cycled hundreds of miles in Spain, Portugal, and France. Hundreds (probably thousands by now really) more in England. And I've never had a puncture in seven years. Then last year and this year I cycle in Wales and bam two punctures in two years 😂 What's up with Welsh roads?

My interview in #Saskatoon newspaper after cyclist killed here in front of her children.

"the greatest danger on the road to people not in vehicles is vehicles. Vehicle occupants have airbags, seatbelts, the vehicle's metal frame
..people who are inside are protected, but the people who are outside of it are not.. the reason people don't cycle in Saskatoon is because they believe and feel it isn't safe to"

I went on to describe bike boxes.

Day 44 of #Running recovery break. 41 KM of #cycling, 26km alone with a couple of early-on #OttawaRaceWeekend detours, had brunch, then 15km with @TAV for errands, and a Frosty at Wendy’s then venturing home. Pleased to see *some* bike parking at TrainYards.

A small bird flew into my hip about 80 seconds into my ride, and is barely visible for eight frames in the video. I was wearing my day-glow yellow shirt. 🤷🏻

I would really appreciate some cloud cover. And more days at 10°C. <sighs>

Random notes:
* Some of the most beloved parts of cities were built around 1900. This way of building is now illegal in the USA – partly due to parking requirements.

The 7-11 Rule re safe cycling.
(thought it up fall of 2022):

1. Could a 7 year old ride safely when with an adult?

2 . Could an 11 year old ride safely by themselves?

3. 7x11 = 77. Would a 77 year old feel safe on a bicycle here?

Safe means:
*actually safe
*feels safe and not dangerous
*everyone 7, 11 & 77 years old feel that cycling is viable where they are needing to go.

Share everywhere please as The 7-11 Rule & get your city to do it!

And because 100 miles isn't long enough, I'm riding from birmingham to london and back either side :) (assuming my slightly injured shoulder holds up!)
