In Retrospect of Bicycle Month

77.61 miles traveled this month by bicycle.  So, I think it should be mentioned that PBM had a lot to do with the success of this month.  He found a sweet bike for me, fixed it up, fixed it again, fixed it some more, and reminded me that it’s all worth it.

He has a lot more to say on this subject than I ever could.  So I asked him to write about bikes.  No other rules.  Just write about bikes for my blog.  Knowing PBM, AKA Scott Baker, I half-expected to get a stack of damp pages, poured over on a typewriter.  Each letter of each word carefully thought out and put on paper with only the power of his elegant machine and his twisting fingers, fighting to put the thoughts to paper as fast as they come.  Thankfully, he knew I would have to re-type whatever he gave me, so he was kind enough to email it to me.

I think it should be mentioned that in addition to saving young women from the perils of bikelessness, he also makes pretty amazing music under the name Simple Heart.  If nothing else, you should open another tab http://simpleheart.bandcamp.com/  and play “Lucky Strike” while reading his musings.  But seriously, he’s a bike mechanic.  So you should totally buy the album, and also take him out and buy him a drink and/or a hot meal.
