New Years Resolutions

The Earth has completed yet another trip around the sun…that means time to make at least one resolution. I’m taking inspiration from this cool footage from the Library of Congress Video Archive where the employees of Parke Davis can be seen leaving their jobs in 1899 by walking or riding a bike.

Before you say anything we know that Automobiles were invented less than 15 years before this footage was shot, that they were unattainable luxuries for the average factory worker, that they have improved the lives and mobility of most of the world since and lets face it…they can be pretty fun to drive!

So, without looking down on anybody for driving a vehicle, We resolve to ride our bikes more frequently (starting with short trips) and to ride more with our kids! Did any of you make bike related resolutions for 2012? Leave a Comment

Have Fun, Ride Safe and Ride More in 2012…Happy New Year!
