Here's another twist for consideration. If you ride purely for exercise, then an ebike may feel like surrender. On the other hand, I rode my ebike whenever I could this winter (temp over 38 F). The...

I'm old to bike riding, but new to eBikes. Mine is a class 1 which means it can't exceed 20 mph. States are introducing regulations for pedal assist that make sense to me. They are to be street...

I'm in, too

I'll be 71 this week. I've always biked, but riding has become more and more important in order to stay active.

Congratulations

Congrats on the "new" old bike. (I'll have to find one from 1947 to keep up with you.) Also, I love the vintage Raleighs.

Quintana Roo Lucero

I am an old guy and my bikes are mostly old, too, but my son has one of his in our garage. I keep reminding him that he might want to take it over to his house (now that he and his wife are not...

Which came first?

I've been married now for 21 years, but bought my bike in 1964 when I needed a way to get to work and my Dad wouldn't let me buy a $50 Ford for sale up the street. As you might have guessed, it's...

Drs Orders

Okay, I'm an old guy who started riding before helmets were invented. My doc gave me her "look" when I told her that I was riding on the street and found stationary bikes boring. She said I had to...

Greetings from the Great Lakes

I live in a small town on the shores of Lake Erie in north central Ohio. I've been riding the same Sherwood Flyer (built by Raleigh) for 53 years, and still think it's something special.

Western Flyer

I ride my bike every day, and haven't really given it much thought. Fact is, I bought my Sherwood Flyer back in 1964 when my father wouldn't let me buy a '51 Ford to drive to work. ("You can't...
