Blue Wheel Bikes

I've been a customer at Blue Wheel Bicycles since the around 1974, when I bought a Torpado from a hole-in-the-wall location near what is now Coupe DeVille's on Elliewood. For years the Blue Wheel was in the blue house at the end of Elliewood, and last year moved downtown to the Ix Building. A friendly, knowlegeable, low-key, high-quality shop.

So Tuesday I decided to buy some lights for my bike - if I want to bike commute more than one or two days a week, I need to be able to safely ride after dark, since much of my council time is in the evenings. I was planning to get just a flashing red light, but Scott told me that City law required a headlight as well (guess I should have known that...).

And we (city council) just decided to invest a lot more next year in bike lanes (and sidewalks and trails) so hopefully bike commuting will become a bit easier and more common.
