I ride my bicycle just about everyday. Our office is only a few steps from my home. Riding the bicycle to work would make no sense at all…it’s too close.
My morning ride is usually through the neighborhood, down to the beach, through Venetian Village and back home. It is a six and half mile ride. I look forward to and miss it when rain or some other distraction prevents me from riding.
My bicycle is a Trek Pure Sport. It is a great bike. New the bike cost about $400. Four hundred dollars is not a lot of money for a bicycle today. But for me $400 is more than the total I have spend all the bicycle I have ever owned. I love my bike.
The thing I like most about my bicycle is the way the seat and pedals are situated. The Trek Pure is a pedal forward bike. On most bikes the pedals are directly below the seat. On the Trek the pedals are about 10 inches forward. This allows the rider to sit upright. Sitting upright with the pedals slightly forward means there is no strain on my back and I am using more of my leg muscles than what I would on an ordinary bicycle.
My bicycle was made in China but it is of excellent quality. Generally I do not like Chinese made stuff but the Trek bicycles are an exception.The Chinese are known for faulty drywall, lead painted toys, tainted dog food and a bunch of other problematic products but not my Trek Pure Sport.
My Trek bike pedals and shifts smooth. I have over three thousand miles on my bike. When I tell people I have traveled over 3000 miles on my bicycle they look at me as if I were some kind of kook.
If you haven’t ridden a bicycle in a while I highly recommend it.
I also recommend 2 way radios. Two way radios improve safety, efficiency and productivity. If you need help finding the right two way radio equipment for your school or business give us a call. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.
