A Cyclist's View is one filled with beauty and mess, growth and change. It's all about perspective as they say but somehow I believe the closer we are connected to our environment, the more we have to experience and understand our surroundings. Get more involved with your neighborhood and hop on a bike - I promise you that it'll open your eyes to more things that a ride in a car will.
The day is here! A day of errands leaving the car in the garage and going by pedal power! Fashionable and adventurous as always, Nancy takes us through her sustainable shopping experience for both the fun and functional items on everyones list, all by bike of course.
Nancy shares her earned wisdom on the rules of the road with humor and candor. Sometimes you earn your experience the hard way, other times you are guided by the grace of strangers and sometimes you get a little bit of both with a touch of embarrassment thrown in for kicks.
Whether you're biking with a purpose, commuting or just out for the sheer pleasure of the ride, please, always be aware of your surroundings.

Nancy continues to discover the simple pleasures of her commute - even in the June Gloom! Not only that but she has begun venturing off the beaten path, check out her blog today to see how she did.
Have you ever talked yourself out of riding your bike and instead hopped in your car because you didn't know how to juggle everything you needed to carry or bring back home? Maybe you have shoulder problems and can't carry a heavy messenger bag or you don't think a basket is manly enough or have to transport something fragile or the sheer bulk of it is too overwhelming to even think your bike and superb sense of balance could handle. Fear not, there are a wide range of creative options out there for you.
Coffee, smoothies and omg.. a diet plan? Please don't be scared! Nancy's not "dieting" but musing on dining habits. Like me, she's not giving up nature's sweet nectar aka - coffee!
Nancy shares with us the Metro portion of her multimodal commute today. As our resident expert on the Metro Blue Line, I hope she encourages you to give it a whirl if you haven't tried it yet.
Hollywood has often exaggerated our view on commuting, making it difficult to discern the truth (especially regarding rail systems) and often scares the timid away from trying it out. Millions of people use rail systems across the US every day and they survive unscathed, not to mention adding a little savings to their pocketbooks!
