So we've just passed the half-way point of the year now. Lots of us here ride bikes obviously. Whether you're a serious racer, a total cyclotouriste, a bike commuter, or someone who just rides a little here and there with the family or by yourself or down to the beach (yes, i'm talking to you, seahorse), how has your bike riding gone so far this year? Progress? Race success? Injuries? Gotten out a lot? Great cycling trips? Discovered some new great roads or trails? Hauled a keg up a mountain? Convinced your chérie/chéri to get out on some rides with you? Gotten your kids out on some rides with you? Taken photos of swedes climbing in the alps? Ridden with a man in a cow suit? You name it, you can talk about it, I'd love to hear it (and i'm sure others would too).
