LIFE ON AND OFF THE BIKE AT THE 46TH PARALLEL

I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota and still call it home.  I have always had a passion for competition and seeking my own extremes.  Although I’ve participated in
many sports my true love lies in the woods.  Out in the

wild is where I can clear my head, where I find my peace,

and I prefer getting there by bike.

Life on a Bike is Hard on Gear!

b2ap3_thumbnail_PC200347.JPGHave you ever worn out a piece of gear and couldn't afford to replace it or just couldn't bring yourself to throw it out? Welcome to my world. Riding a bike is a very simple thing to do, but the deeper one goes into the rabbit hole, the more expensive it all becomes. I've found that I need to prioritize my needs mostly based on whatever season I'm in at the time. My wife and I own one car which she needs for work. That leaves me with my bike, year round. I justify whatever money I throw toward gear with the fact that I'd either be buying gear or maintaining the expense that comes with cars. Top priority goes toward items that will keep me as comfortable as I can be on the commutes, typically that means staying warm. Unfortunately the life span of a lot of this stuff is just way too short. I'm sure many of you can relate and maybe some of your gear looks as used and abused as mine does.

Cher Ami

Cher Ami, the World War I carrier pigeon that didn't know the meaning of the word quit. She was the last chance for more than 500 men trapped behind enemy lines without food or ammunition. Thrust into flight she carried a message tied to her leg back to head quarters.
