Chip - do you use any of your bicycles for purposes other than riding? Like attaching one to a "washing machine" or making a "bike blender"?

This belongs to a guy who visits the nearby market every week - it's a knife sharpener!







I really ought to find a knife that needs sharpening so I have an excuse to take some action photos...

I use my bicycle for inspiriation. I'm writing a fair pile of poetry these days for two different books, and I've found that a nice bike ride (with pen and notebook stashed on board) usually produces a goodly amount of ideas for a bit of writing upon return.

I also use my bicycle to render aid and assist where needed; that is, I do stop and ask people I see along the way if they need help, if they look as though they might. Most don't, but some do. I carry tools to fix most common problems, and I know the area. I was able, a bit earlier, to help four lost souls on bicycles find a place to eat on the other side of town. Thery were from out of state, so they had no idea what was where. I do. Now they do, too.

That's how I use my bike.

I use my Bike to Remove and keep A Fat Gut off of me. I use it to get my Heart Pumping for years longer than it may, If I sit and come up with too many "poor Me" excuses I may never ride my bike again.

Jeremy: BEST. USE. EVER!
 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
