Along with encouragement to fix up your summer bicycle, Red Bike also offers the following reading suggestions for your winter months:
There’s snow on the ground. Not a lot of snow, but it looks serious; like it’s fairly committed to seeing things through until spring. So now what? There are lots of ways to get through. Personally, I’ve eaten A LOT of berries and salmon this summer in the hopes that all that food might make me REALLY sleepy. So far, I feel quite alert: fat, but alert. I may have to default to my usual winter activity, reading. I did make a visit to my local Edmonton Public Library yesterday and borrowed twice as many books as I did at my last visit. I’m also busy bookmarking my favourite web sites for daily visits. Amazingly, I’ve also renewed subscriptions to a couple of print magazines. Yes, in these modern, paperless times, print still has some appeal. At the shop, we’ve found a couple of magazines that are very much the answer to the modern malaise that print media suffers from. Print simply can’t keep up with the webs when it comes to current reportage, so these mags; Rouleur and Privateer, are almost more celebrations of the cycling lifestyle. And they are beautifully done. Come have a look. A quick look.
