Cruising in Saturday traffic, is way different than commuting during the week.
18 casual miles without a bike lane in sight, is not for the faint of heart. When we first started pedaling, 3 plus years ago, I thought it would be nice to pedal with music. I made a small speaker system for my Organic Transit ELF. But after just a few days of pedaling with music, I decided I needed to pay attention to the rode more than I needed music.
