New Shoes

Sometimes my non-bikey friends don’t quite understand my bike obsession.

So I have to find ways to make it relatable to those not as familiar with the lifestyle.

I find it makes more sense to compare bikes to shoes than cars or household appliances like vacuum cleaners. Shoe obsessions are very relatable.

And both bikes and shoes are very useful for getting around. Cars and vacuum cleaners, not so much.

Bicycles aren’t obsessions. My 1992 Litespeed E-Stay mountain, my 1997 Burley Rock and Roll Tandem bicycle, my 2003 Santana and my second Carbon Fiber 2015 Velomobile Quest.

Well….maybe my Velomobile is my obsession….. 😉

As for shoes, I have a pair of boots and a pair of cycling shoes…..

One reason for more than one bike is for out of town visitors to use. Would the analogy be when you have an out of town guest who didn’t bring rubber boots to visit and it started pouring?

Yes! And those snow boots are a fat-tire bike, or a certain variety of mountain bike, depending on the snow. (Says the reader from Minnesnowta.)
