Bicycle Lifestyle is catching on
I’m sitting here tonight eating fresh organic cherries after a nice ride back from mother truckers (north san juan’s place to get your grocieries) and I just finished reading and watching Mark Benjamin’s review of his week of Xtracycle use on Salon.com. http://www.salon.com/mwt/good_life/2008/07/24/sports_utility_bicycle/
He gets it. He did three of the top 5 every day bicycle adventures. He went grocery shopping, took his kids to school and partied with his friends. (I wish he had shown the part where three couples rode 3 Xtracycles together to dinner after bike blending margaritas).
I have often tried to figure out how to describe the experience of being someone ‘on the inside’ who wishes they could share with others the ecstatic experience they are having. I’ve described it with Xtracycle Bicycle Lifestyle as a person out for a walk in a big park that sees some alluring frolic going on off in the distance. Their mind is dubious, their soul is curious: will they go over and check it out? Will it be as fun as it looks? Will they be welcome?
I am so grateful for more and more brave souls who are risking, reaching out and trying on the Xtracycle Bicycle Lifestyle. Mark Benjamin from Salon.com is one. And there are so many more. Thank you.
