The summer is a great time for developing hobbies, like drinking. Not for me though, I’m throwing myself into the realm of biking. I’ve been biking semi-seriously since about January, and that will soon change now that it’s officially summer around the U.S.

If you’re already into biking, then these two links are for you:


  • My friend Garrett left a comment a great comment on the CouchSurfing.com post. He mentioned WarmShowers.com, a site similar to CouchSurfing, except specifically for traveling cyclists. Rock on.

  • Cleaning a bike is very important. I cleaned my yesterday for the first time. (I didn’t have degreaser or Teflon spray in my dorm room. And I was lazy.) I found this great tutorial on cleaning a bike yesterday. I used it and would recommend it.

If you’re looking to get into road/mountain biking this summer, your first stop is probably a swap meet or craigslist. Or I suppose you could always email me, I’d be happy to help.

What are you doing as a summer hobby?
