THE BIKE OF DOOM, COMMUTING ON A BUDGET
I recently found this interesting blog by a fellow Canadian named Steve George of Winnipeg. Steve commutes to work daily and the situation changed where he couldn't bring his bike indoors anymore. He had to leave it locked outside while at work. Bike theft being a consideration, he didn't want to leave his good bike alone during the day. It would seem that broken and busted bike locks are as common as daisies in that area!
So Steve went ahead and bought a $99 department store bike for his daily commute and blogs about the experience. I find that this well written blog could be of use to a lot of you. I have commuted myself on a POS Wally World special for many years. But that was before my blogging days and I didn't keep track of the adventure. I'm glad that Steve has and that he is sharing it with the world.
So check it out, The Bike Of Doom.
Til next time, ride safe and Godspeed.
