Art (I created it myself)





Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    In addition to all your alter egos — you are an artist too? Love the bike art ;’-). Claus appears to be struggling a bit in the ……SNOW????? 🥶

    Good numbers you show ;’-). And the snow looks beautiful.

    Eden…Adam and Eve would need a lot of fig leaves there.

    I love the bike art and all those snow flakes and I can’t believe you could ride in 10F. But obviously you did.
