no matter how unaware we are of it, bikes make a huge difference in our lives and cities. since i've gotten on two wheels i've made major changes in my life like picking up a second major in urban studies. for me this is a big deal, i've been studying english literature during my college career (and continue to do so) but i've always wanted to participate in something that was influential with cities and bicycling . i guess when you actually see how cycling can effect your own life for good, you're inspired to make it so for everyone and perhaps make it better, that's the point of utilizing this space of a blog. at the core i'm a literature nerd and can talk about poetry and technical writing for days but on the active part of me i love sustainable practices in all walks of life. it's just a huge part of me that is greatly affected by riding a bike. have you ever thought of the ways your bike has changed your life?
