But I keep reminding myself what Dale Walksler of Wheels Through Time advised me, “Get the bike running right and then leave it alone. […]

So Many Rides, So Little Time

The winter of 2010-11 was too much for any rider to deal with considering all that snow we had. This winter was quite the opposite in most parts of the US and Canada.  If you have not yet done your first ride safety check, I hope you can soon. At the very least, check the […]
