BikeMuse – Map of Bicycling Shops and Clubs

with one comment

Here’s a interesting new Tour Planing Tool. The following note from BikeMuse that explains what it is and how it works:

About 6 months ago, Mapmuse.com began a project- the interactive
mapping of bicycle shops and cycling clubs across the US. We initially
researched and populated these maps ourselves, with the idea in mind
that cycling enthusiasts would subsequently add to, and enhance, the
information we provided. We mapped each bicycle shop and cycling club,
and provided space for a written description, photo, and link to a
website. Since this project was started, the public has made hundreds
of additions and enhancements to these maps. We now have one of the
most comprehensive databases of bicycle shops and cycling clubs in the
US. If you were one of our contributors, we’d like to thank you for
your help.

I’m posting today to ask that if you know of any bicycle shops or
cycling clubs that have started up or ended in the last 6 months, that
you make those changes to the maps. Also, please feel free to add any
bicycle shops or cycling clubs that we are still missing. You can make
changes through easy to use links on the site- if you have any
problems, see http://find.mapmuse.com/re1/mmFAQ.htm#A4 .

The link to the Bicycle shops Map is as follows:

I am back

with one comment

I have been away for a while because of a hip problem but seem to be working my way back slowly. I am hoping to be back on the bike by Spring.

My hip problem is a classic example of ignoring what your body is saying and not enought diversity in my exercise. I always tell new riders to walk for as long as you rider when you are building up miles, but this is tough when you start riding hours per day.

For now, I am working on stretching and walking. I am staying away from bikes of all kinds but I don’t know how long I can do that .. smile.
