To Hobos on Bicycles

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, Apr 11, 2012 at 1:25 PM

I think it's great you bike! It's a super efficient way to get around and fun way to shed a few pounds. But I'm pretty sure that blue Trek with the shocks on the front that you seem to favor has more than one gear. Pedaling a million miles an hour in gear 1-1 isn't getting anyone to the Freddie's recycling center any faster. Take that grip shifter in your right hand and just turn in forward a notch; maybe two! Maybe even up to 5! Then you can do the same with your left — take it to the 2! Easy now, you're no Thor Hushovd — yet. Come Autumn though, you'll be thinking that gear 2-4 is like baby stuff. Next time, we'll talk about which side of the road to ride on.
