A Brief Blog Profile: Change Your Life, Ride a Bike
by Thomas Hynes
I really like the name of the blog Change Your Life, Ride a Bike. It's straight to the point. It speaks to results. But also, I do ride a bike, and it has changed my life. I'm betting it would change most other people's lives, too. It's healthy. It's cheap. It's good for the environment. Oh and it's kind of fun, too! Truthfully, there are a lot of reasons to ride a bike. In their own words, this is the blog for "people to share how riding a bike has changed how they see themselves and the world."
Ok. So at this point, you can probably tell that I'm a little biased to biking. But honestly, Change Your Life, Ride a Bike is a good blog regardless of how many wheels get you to work. There's this post on a bike-savvy fashion show and this one on biking dads. But then there's also this post on how donating bikes to malaria-ravaged areas of the world can help fight poverty. Yeah, wow. Add that to the list up top about why biking is awesome.
I also really love this post about how the 'fad' of biking is really nothing new. To further illustrate this point, the author shows a picture of their mom in 1952 and then again in 2011. In both shots, she's standing beside a bike, as if to say, this is nothing new. To be honest, I really want you to read this blog. But even more than that, I want you to see about going for a ride just as soon as you can.
