Bicycle Touring Pro Hosts “Bicycle Lifestyle” Web Event

The website Bicycle Touring Pro is gearing up for a big event next weekend. In an effort to promote “Bicycle Travel As A Modern Lifestyle Choice”, the site will host an online only event with some of the biggest names in the cycling industry dropping by to contribute.

Things get underway on Saturday, November 22nd and will continue through Sunday the 23rd, a slew of interviews, news, question and answer sessions, and videos focused on bicycle travel, commuting, and lifestyle design. Amongst those scheduled to contribute are: The Adventure Cycling Association,, Joe Kurmaskie author of The Metal Cowboy, and many more.

Many cyclists see riding as a way of life, and not just a way to get from Point A to Point B, and in this day and age, alternative modes of transportation are an important thing to consider. Just because gas has dropped below $2/gallon again in much of the country doesn’t mean we should all go back to our gas guzzlers. This is a very cool project using the web to get the word out about the cycling lifestyle and options for commuting, and I applaud the gang over at Bicycle Touring Pro for putting this on. I hope it’s a huge success for them.

  1. No problem Darren, very cool event and I hope it’s a huge success for you.

    Jacob: Thanks for the kind words. Glad you like the blog.

  2. Thanks for sticking your neck out and trying to promote cycling! You’re right that gas being cheap again ( for now ) isn’t a good reason to start driving to the neighbors’ house again.

    I do a lot of my transport on two wheels. Some of the reasons are practical: parking is easier, I don’t need to maintain insurance, food is cheaper than gas, etc. But the main reason is that it’s simply good fun. And the main counterpoint to that reasoning is that aggressive drivers put my life in danger, without thinking twice. I hope this is resolved before my lifetime is cut short … and the type of awareness you’re helping to raise will be a part of making that happen.

    I’m glad I saw this before the event happened – I’m looking forward to it.

  3. Yep! Going to be a great event, and Darren over at Bicycle Touring Pros deserves a lot of credit for pushing this kind of thing.

    I love riding my bike as well. It’s not as easy now that the days are shorter and a bit cooler, but it’s still great fun and an incredible feeling of freedom. Nothing like cruising the open roads with little to no traffic on a beautiful day. 🙂
