Get Your Ride On!
How were you able to do that?! You sounded serious, humorous, and monotone,
ALL AT ONCE! I’m jealous! You also put it to an almost ‘Reggae’ sounding
instrumental tune! Perfect choice! I HAVE to find more reviews made by you.
That’s the best one I EVER saw!
jaja i love this review
Leatherman ? Try 7 x CREE T6 ~9000 Lumen
perfect soundtrack :D
@mhanlen1 isn’t ANYONE “a bit concerned” that the biggest comunist country
in the world is slowly but SURELY becoming number 1 in the
I’m scared of comunism,because I know what’s it all about…
For CHINA to become world leader is like the biggest nightmare to come
Cheers from Romania…
oh so they’re not good enough for the pompous cyclists…
What the hell are you gibbering about? Are you so impressed with your witty
retort that you feel the need to post it twice on the same video? [[slow
hand clap]] You should get back to your World of Warcraft, porn, or
whatever you while away your days and nights on the internet on. Thanks for
stopping by, though!
just awful that the pompous cyclist would have to wait for something …
I love the way you reviewed it :3 Props to you
Enjoyed that, and a useful review. Just bought a B&M but now thinking I
could have spent half as much on one of these – might buy one as a backup.
And I loved the line about the 8 hour charge being perfect for people who
like really long charging times! More, please ?
I like this review style. You are funny
You should be able to get there in a hour or maybe a little longer. A road bike will be a lot faster and easier for that distance. I go out and get in 20 miles about everyday when the weather is nice. You have plenty of time to get out and train for that distance a hour a day will be plenty. I can do 13 miles in 45 min and that includes climbing some steep hills on purpose.
Get a good bike from a bike shop and put a rack on it. You can get folding steel baskets to mount on the rack or panniers.
you could do it
it would take a lot of time though
26 miles would be about 3 hours a day including dressing, changing, riding, bike maintenance
if you have anywhere else to go, i hope it;s on the way!
you won;t want to be doing any MORE riding, more than likely
question is, can you devote 3 hours of your day to transportation and still do a decent job at school?>
Can you do it? Yes 26 miles a day isn’t a huge amount of riding. Even easier since you will be riding 13 miles at a time.
Ok let’s face it the first week will be a challenge for you. It would be easier to determine your ride if the hills were better described. Hills can wear on you until you become fit and learn the technique. That said this isn’t an insurmountable task. If you go up a hill you have to come back down and that’s the fun part. (I don’t commute but I do ride every day it’s above 40 and no snow. My ride distance average for 2012 was 48 miles per ride)
Your equipment matters too. You need a decent bike to depend on every day. Nothing too serious but at least a good hybrid or flat bar road bike with a rack on the back to be able to carry what you need. A visit to the bike shop is in order. Talk in length and listen to them.
Consider weather too. Your bags (on your rack to carry stuff) have to be water proof — I mean we don’t know where you are but it rains everywhere at some point. You need cycling clothing and a change of clothing at your destination. You will need to stay warm on the bike in the cool months. You need a helmet and a water bottle for every hour of riding. Don’t forget rain clothing for riding. These things need to be looked at and considered. You wont be riding in street clothes and if you don’t have fenders — consider them. Un-fendered tires sling water and grime all over you. Don’t forget lighting. On public roads you should display front and rear (flashing LED’s) lights in day light too. A rear view mirror is invaluable.
Try this first. On a day you don’t have to be there that has good weather, get on your bike and try it. You should make it to school in an hour. Before long that time will drop. ( I mean I am 59, but have been riding literally all my life and could make it that distance in about 45 minutes at a relaxed pace.)
Distance seems a little much and if this is a year around school than i wouldnt recommend biking. The weather can be harsh. Ive biked 15 miles to school on a day and my tires were literally bubbling because of the hot road. If you do chose to bike to school, i would really gear up and also remember to give yourself 15 minutes for the class starts to rest and calm down. It is really difficult to exercise and then study when your heart is racing
3 times a week? Entirely possible. We don’t own a car (if necessary, I can get a bus/train into town and grab one from a car sharing scheme), and usually do everything by bike (or with public transport).
I work 5 days a week and have to go over a distance of roughly 10 miles, with ~200 meters (600 feet) of height difference between my workplace and home (downhill going to work, uphill on the way home). An acquintance from the local bike club only has three days of commute per week, but commutes ~30 miles (one way) over flat terrain.
During winter (i.e. now) I’m using a modified unsuspended MTB (finally built one myself from a good steel frame and the parts that accumulated and survived over the last few years), during summer (i.e. without risk of ice or salt on the roads) I ride a touring recumbent.
Exhausting? Just take it slow. The difference between pushing it and going leisurely is maybe 5 minutes on my daily ride.
Monotonous? Much less than in a car (or the train). Ok, on the bike I (usually – unless it’s covered in ice like today) take the scenic route for most of the trip.
Hate life? Definitely not.
Aching muscles? No. Ok, sometimes – two times per year, for about a week or so, after I’ve switched between the two bikes. Recumbent uses other muscles as the MTB (and vice versa), especially in the neck (on the ‘bent, I have to look ‘down’, on the MTB, I need to look ‘up’ in order to see the road).
Athletic? You wish… I could afford to lose 20 kilos, and I’m 20 years older than you are.
I am joyful I found this article. Your own information is actually thought-provoking and also most intriguing. I accept the points you have made in this writing.
