My time in Oahu

My time here is ending after about a year and a half during the pandemic. My first impression of Oahu is that there are too many cars. Overall Hawaiians do seem to accept cyclists, but there are...

I can't really think of a beloved activity. I do rent a car when my bike or the bus do not meet the need, and this is a rare occurrence, but it does happen. Even if I was not environmentally...

Been car free for 6 years.

I don't remember giving up too much. I suppose a car is convienent, but incredibly expensive and destructive to the environment. We still use public transportation, but for daily life I use my bike...

Thanks

Yes, I did read that thread, and it sounds very different from what I am used to. We don't have bike lanes here, and people are courteous to cyclists for the most part. I ride from one end of the...

The weekend was a good ride, and now I am over 100 kms every week. Today is a bank holiday here, and a perfect day for riding, because traffic is down, but I had big rides on Saturday and Sunday, and...

Thanks, yes I did see this on YouTube, and I am keeping this in mind as I look for a case. I already carry small wrenches, so the larger wrench should not add too much to the weight.
