So on Sunday I had the chance to ride w/a friend of mine named Lucas. Lucas has been my riding partner since I can remember here in Colorado SPrings. It was cool how we met casually riding down the main drag downtown Colorado Springs heading to Old Town Colorado Springs.....
Lucas has recently been attacked by a pirate named "GIHAD". Notorious for ganking dreadlocks. Anyhow, I am now interviewing various riders wherever I may be riding and here is the start.
-Where are you from originally and where are you currently residing?
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO
-Whom or what got you into cycling, fixed gear track bikes specifically?
I GOT INTO RIDING BMX BIKES WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. MY FRIEND ERIC WAS THE ONE WHO GOT ME HOOKED ON RIDING FIXED GEAR BIKES.
-What type of music do you listen to?
I LISTEN TO A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING. LATELY I HAVE BEEN HOOKED ON "THE NATIONAL."
-What are your favorite jams while riding/training?
WHEN I AM RIDING MY BIKE I LOVE TO LISTEN TO A BIT OF TECHNO OR SOMETIMES SOME DRUM AND BASS. ANYTHING WITH A GOOD BEAT TO KEEP THOSE CRANKS SPINNING.
-What type of shoes do you like riding with and why are they?
I USUALLY JUST ROCK SOME VANS AUTHENTICS. THEY ARE COMFORTABLE AND THEY HAVE ENOUGH SOLE SO MY PEDALS DONT WEAR ON THE BOTTOMS OF MY FEET.
-What is it about riding that keeps you going? Why do you like riding bicycles?
I LOVE RIDING BIKES BECAUSE ITS A GREAT WAY FOR ME TO JUST ZONE OUT FOR A BIT. I LOVE HOPPING ON MY BIKE JUST TO PEDAL. ITS A WAY FOR ME TO NOT THINK ABOUT WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN MY LIFE.
-What bikes do you currently own and what is your daily masher?
I OWN A FEW BIKES RIGHT NOW. ONE BMX BIKE, A BIANCHI FULL CARBON ROAD BIKE, A WINDSOR HOUR, AND A LEADER ALUMINUM TRACK BIKE. I USUSALLY JUST MASH AROUND ON MY LEADER. ITS THE BIKE THATS MOST COMFORTABLE AND EASY TO RIDE.
-Where are/is your favorite place to ride and explain why?
I LOVE TO RIDE MY BIKE WHEREVER I CAN, IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE MOOD. SOMETIMES I LIKE TO JUST GET OUT INTO THE WILDERNESS A BIT AND JUST SPEND A LITTLE TIME WITH NATURE. THEN THERE ARE DAYS WHERE I JUST WANT TO RIDE AROUND DOWNTOWN AND WEAVE IN AND OUT OF TRAFFIC. IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE DAY.
--Lucas spewed: LETS RIDE BIKES! I THINK EVERYONE WHO HAS A CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDER SHOULD GIVE THAT UP. WE ALL LOVE TO RIDE BIKES, WHY CANT EVERYONE JUST BE OPEN MINDED AND RIDE BIKES TO RIDE BIKES!
