    The fixie's in

    By Bicycle in Bicycle

    I've been working on a story about bike commuting in Victoria that's scheduled to run in Sunday's paper. I think one of the things that surprised me most is there are a handful of people in Victoria who either ride or are ...

    It's not brain surgery

    By Bicycle in Bicycle

    Wear a helmet. Now, I'm not anyone's mother. But I cringe when I see most of the cyclists in Victoria don't wear helmets on the road. They're pretty cheap -- starting at $15 or so. Certainly much cheaper than hospital care.  ...

    Thank you, Editor & Publisher

    By Bicycle in Bicycle

    I passed by a co-workers desk last night, and the May 2008 Editor and Publisher stopped me so fast I flew over my proverbial handle bars. There, on the cover.... was.... no, I'm too excited to type it.... there was ...

    Frazz says, "Buy a decent bike"

    By Bicycle in Bicycle

    I really enjoyed the story line in Frazz last week. You'll have to start with 6/16 to get the whole thing. I agree with this:  If you love a bike and you ride it a lot, it's worth every penny ...
