Собственно, никогда не любил все эти беговые дорожки и велотренажёры на фитнесе и пользуюсь ими только по нужде (потому что, типа, правильно).
Велотуры по восточнопрусским дорожным аллеям никакими эразцами заменить невозможно.
'I'm riding Le Tour in my spare room': the indoor cycling revolution
The boom in virtual riding systems like Peloton and Zwift has got people swapping the road for a room at home. Are they worth it?#bicycle #sports #life #toughtsaloud
Today, the ELF is a 160 pound (72.5kg) vehicle that can carry up to two adults (or an adult plus 2 children) or an adult plus 500+ lbs (226 kg) of cargo (there’s space in back for a dozen bags of groceries. Starting at $7,000, it’s classified as a 'bicycle' by US law so it can't legally go faster than 20 mph on just electric power (though pedaling and hills will speed things up).ELF electric-assist #bike. More than a #bicycle, less than a car, maybe the best of both?
With a lithium-ion battery and mid-motor drive, it has a range of 48 miles per charge (and further if you pedal). The rooftop solar panel will recharge the battery with 7 to 8 hours of sun or the battery can be removed and plugged into a wall for a 2.5 hour charge.
That bicycle helmets are not currently tested against such impacts will be a revelation to many cyclists and motorists, many of whom erroneously assume that bicycle helmets offer greater protection than they are actually designed to provide.The helmet is a lie. It always has been.

IT IS that time of year when stripping off and riding a #bicycle through the streets naked is totally acceptable.
The dress code is “as bare as you dare” – #nudity is allowed and encouraged.
The cycle ride takes place on Sunday, June 9, at 11am.
People are invited to meet at Preston Park to slap on sun cream, and body paint – some is provided – before the naked cycle.
Udało sie dzisiaj trzasnąć jakieś 70-80km. Totalnym lajtem, tak że w zasadzie rower sam jechał. Bez spiny, byle podziwiać krajobrazy. Bo kilka fajnych miejsc na Lubelszczyźnie sie znajdzie :)

Bikes are the way we move around in this family so there has always been room in the budget for repairs at the bicycle repairman, Not having a car saves you a lot of money in this country. But I have also always made any repairs I knew how to... just to be thrifty - considering my lacking talent for making money it has been the best way for me to stay free and independent of a real job.
My wife's Finnish Jopo bike with a new saddle, bicycle chain and induction rear light.
I have been putting this off for a long time, but the hole in the wooden box of the Christiania bike and my daughters relentless pestering me to fix her a new bike, finally made me give in.
A hole in the wooden box of the Christiania bike. I will return with a report on that home builder project when I get the time to actually do it.
After more than ten years sturdy service the plywood of the Christiania bike is rooting away. I have decided to cut, paint and lacquer the new plywood. It would probably be easier to simply invest the 300$ in new prefabricated modules, but... I guess I got carried away when planning this.
I tend to prefer to by in local shops, but this time I choose a webshop as I had to order so many different things. I have about 20 bikeshops within a kilometer of my home, so I guess they have businesses that can survive without me. The place I bought from was a super efficient little shop in the Danish countryside, and they sent me all my orders so they were available next morning even though I ordered at 4 pm.
A set of break cables from the webshop in Jylland.
Repairing a bike is actually rather easy. All the components are standardised, and you can choose what you like and it almost always fit. There will maybe be a couple of different solutions but never a vendor lock-in. It is really just like a large Meccano set.
My daughters new bike. I replaced the tubes on both wheels.
The most expensive part of the project was battery free bike lights. But as bicycle lights are mandatory by law and these works for years (mine has worked for more than 5 years without maintenance) I consider them a good investment.
The brake cable on the front V-brakes had rusted into one brown clog, so I replaced the cable entirely.
Last but not least... pink handles. I didn't choose the colour.

Kilka fotek z wypadu rowerowego
Udało się wreszcie zrobić szybki wypad nad Zalew Zemborzycki. Trzeba przyznać, że nawet gdy okoliczny las Dąbrowa zamiast zielenią wita człowieka szaroburością zimowej szaty, poziom wody jest dramatycznie niski, a sam akwen wciąż w wielu miejscach skuty lodem, jest to miejsce bardzo fajne. Leśna trasa, prowadząca nie gładkim asfaltem, ale lasem, wąską ścieżką, po wystających korzeniach i piachu, wzdłuż stromego, spadającego prawie wprost do wody brzegu, jest dla mnie obowiązkowa przy większości przejazdów w tamtej okolicy.
