I’m generally not a fan of people who equate cycling to weight loss or weight loss to health. That said, I love this story of a man who was faced with “gastric bypass or die” from his doctor, he chose the third option - riding a bike. And I love the community of cyclists he found who rode with him instead of shaming him back into his house. Cycling is such a joyful, freeing...

I got the first draft of my tattoo from Serena at midnight last night and it is simply gorgeous. I sent it to a few people for their thoughts and am taking my sister’s suggestion on one change. It will be the ultimate bike Chicago tattoo. Maybe not THE ultimate, but it is so damn nice. Can’t wait to show you, internet.

dgridley: …admitting when I’m injured or sick (especially online) is just throwing it out there to the world that I’m the sickly member of the herd.

technology killed romance
aldoushuxtable: Nope, apathy did. If you demand better, then you’ll get better. That goes for men/women wanting to be wooed and the men/women getting wooed. (The above statement took me 26 years and 360 days to realize, but Whoomp! There it is.)

Buy these from me - 3x Cycling Knickers →
Bought these in a women’s 3x and I don’t like how they fit me. I was able to zip them, so they are technically true to size, but I don’t like how they look on me and would rather sell them to a tumblr cycling lovely than deal with the 25% restocking fee and shipping if I return them. I paid $50, so I’m asking $50.

Now to find an artist
I started out thinking that I wanted a bicycle/pin-up tattoo, but the more I looked for inspiration, the more I had to admit that pin-ups just aren’t my style. Art deco bicycle designs, however, are super my style. There is so much movement in the images and I love it. Does anyone know of an artist (or happen to be an artist) that can take all of these ideas and come up with a bad-ass, art...
