Push some pedals with these cycle-savvy finds from Bicycling Expert Darryl Kotyk of Loving The Bike. Just remember to wear a helmet.
VIDEO // Live.Love.Bike “If you weren’t loving the bike before, then this video is sure to put you in the spirit.  It’s a short documentary about the people you can meet and the experiences you can have when experiencing the world by bike. It was made by Ryan Van Duzer, and I there just happens to be a little cameo in it by me and my son.”
SHOPPING // Viva la Bicicleta“Recommending a place to buy bike parts and accessories may seem a little boring, so I’m pointing out this site that lets you scream out ‘Viva la Bicicleta’.  Just in case you don’t know Spanish, it means ‘Long Live the Bicycle’.  My favorite is their original t-shirt, but I also have shirts for my kids as well.”
NEWS ARTICLE // Bike for Health“In my opinion, cycling can make anything better…so when I recently saw this story of how the bicycle helped this woman survive leukemia, I smiled.  Then I hugged my bike.”
FRIENDS WHO KNOW // @StevieDexter“I have a lot of great bike loving friends out there, but when I need to lean on someone for information on pro-cycling information (an area that I could use some help with), it’s always Stevie. He’s knowledgeable, funny, and that UK accent of his always makes me smile.”
