Who here owns a bicycle? Who actually rides it from time to time?

I don't own one but am in the market for one.

Don't own one, haven't ridden one in about 30 years. Mrs. Bubba has given some thought to getting one since her office is only a couple of miles from the house, though.

Hubby has a nice one. He was thinking about doing a mini tri, so needed a compatible bike.

It's a nice looking bike, even in the corner of the garage, with cobwebs from lack of use, and flat tires.

Everyone in my family owns one, however, both mom and dad's bikes are not rideable. Why, you ask? Because Junior cannibalized them for parts for his bike (without permission of course) :mad:

We have bikes and ride the occasionally. We used to ride more when The Girl was younger on various trails, but now I'll go on a 5-10 mile ride every few weeks & that's about it.

It's too freakin' hot right now to ride!

I bought a $600 Trek mountain bike in college, and used it a hand full of times. It was a terrible purchase. The bike shop undersized the bike so it was way too small for me. I sold it last year for around $250? I can't really remember. I don't have one now, and probably won't buy one any time soon.

I still have my old BMX bike that I want to fix up, but my wife thinks I would look ridiculous on it. We have talked about getting a bike when our daughter is old enough so that we can do family rides.

I have a nice Trek road bike but it's had a flat tire for quite a while and needs a tune up. . . keeps getting pushed toward the bottom of the "I should get that taken care of this weekend" pile. Soon, bike, I promise!!
