12 Things All Cyclists Are (or Should Be) Thankful for
This entry was posted on November 26, 2014.
It's that time of year when we take a break from obsessing over our bike and spend some time counting our blessings (by eating and watching football). So, as cyclists of all varieties, here is our list of things we're thankful for:
1. Freshly paved roads
Just hearing that phrase makes us go, "Aaahhhh."
2. Tubeless tires
Seriously. If you have tried them yet, you really should consider dumping the tubes.
For reminding us how nice it is to have gears and freehubs.
4. Arm and knee warmers
So easy to put on. So easy to take off. And oh so warm on a cool morning ride.
5. Super bright LED bike lights
Now it doesn't matter when a domestic dispute arises. You can blow off steam 24/7!
For giving us the first full carbon bike in 1987.
7. Saddles with full cutouts
Many children in this world probably owe their existence to a cutout.
We wouldn't be able to ride without it. Or live.
9. Bar Mitts
Add a "vah" and it's a nice warm party.
10. Tom Ritchey
He basically owns Movember, all year long.
11. Chair lifts & shuttles
Because who wants to ride uphill? Oh yeah... this guy.
12. A post-ride meal
Here's wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving.
