ok mods...

i like food and pets and photogz...

so how 'bout another section in 'lifestyles' for THESE threads....

mostly about bicycles, but also so trikes, folders, recumbents, bike racks and other HUMAN POWERED vehicles...

here is a pretty good list to start the wheels rolling!

Hi Jack. Diesel bicycles are not yet fully developed. E85 either.

Honestly! I think this next post says something about how many non-Airstream directions we are willing to pursue in a week, month or year -- Photog-flyfish-harley-canoe-singles forums? Thread content and tone inevitably has changed at AIR Forums. I speak for many who would not wish to accelerate the dilution of the principle matter at hand. It's AIRforums.com. Thank you

This forum is an expensive visit. Couple of months ago I started reading some of the bike threads, wound up visiting all of the bike stores in COS, test rode a few. Bought two bikes one for me and one for my Bride. Rode my bike home from the store, 3 miles, kinda rough on an old fat man. And it was uphill all the way. I do enjoy the peacefulness of a ride and hope to have time to ride a lot when the weather is good.

Hey 2air, Just bought a couple of xootr kick scooters Xootr Urban Transport - Home Page Kick Scooters and Folding Bicycles We are having a lot of fun with them. Check them out. I also just replaced my bike with a Trek So Ho 4.0. I am still riding the BMW's but I am enjoying the human powered stuff also.

hi royce

well the springs is a biking mecca of sorts.

next time u get a chance visit the store 20 miles up the road in woodland park.

ANGLETECH

pricey machines, but they will let ya test ride recumbents for free!

the owner (kelvin) used to live in the seattle area, where his dad had an unusual moped, car, lawnmower n bike shop...

his TWIN brother (kevin) runs the northwest shop and they couldn't be more different.

they were one of the first places to carry moultons (my ride) and helped develop the FIRST dual suspension mountain bike.

4 those who haven't heard of or seen a moulton here is the factory site...Alex Moulton Bicycles

the anglelake website is useless except for the retro pictures (website has NOT changed in 10 years)

good choice on the bike phil...

i'd be more likely to crash n burn on the xootrs4sure!

full body armor AND a helmet would be necessary!

be sure to check out the 'cars' in that 3rd link...they are related to yer motobike!

cheers

bikes are good

I would love to see a section for bicycles and how they are important to have and use with our Airstreams. As I remember there is even a picture of one on the side of my trailer...

But really, the bikes are always with us and sometimes the reason we go on a trip in the first place.

We are thinking of attending the tour de Georgia Bicycle race this spring and following along with the trailer like the tour de France fanatics do. I think it would be a great way to see the action close up and still have the comforts of "home".
Thanks 2air for pedaling this idea.
Gary

I own at least ten bikes, mostly Treks, and ride nearly every day. I try to do 70-80 miles per week, and it's kind of a hobby to build/rebuild them. There's always one in the back of the TV. Lately, I taken to stripping the paint and decals off the alloy frames so they match my Airstreams.


I'll be OK.

Bicycles and Airstreams

They just fit together. My friend and I did the STP, Seattle to Portland bicycle ride last year. ON day one, we pedaled from Husky Stadium to Chehalis. (The flooded place this year). I pre positioned Aunt Gladys at a small RV park the day before. We rolled up, tired, grimy and sore, it was 115 miles. Got out, took a shower, nap, walk and ate a huge BBQ over the fire. Slept like a baby, woke up with good coffee and powdered donuts, got back on the bike and finished the ride.

The Airstream was designed for outings like this. Many other cyclist stayed in tents, rented rooms, park benches. We were living in style.

Great fun
