Hey everyone. I’m Matthew Carpenter, and I’ve been riding bicycles ever since I was ten.
I mean it—ten years old.
I couldn’t get the hang of it until then, and trust me, my cousins and friends all liked to pick on me for it.
But once I learned how to make those tires spin the way I wanted, I never stopped pedaling.
I’ve competed in plenty of bicycle races, and I’m proud to say I’ve been commuting to work via bicycle for the past four-and-a-half years now.
Cycling has helped me control my asthma to the point that it’s barely even there anymore, cut down on carbon emissions (I try to live as green as possible), and I’m in excellent shape as a result.
I think more people should be cycling. For leisure, for commuting, for any reason you want—I’m just excited that you’re here and you’re ready to hop on a bike.
As time goes on, I’ll cover more topics and we’ll flesh out this fantastic resource together.
From a lifetime of using bicycles to get around and enjoy myself, I believe I’ve compiled enough experience and knowledge to help enrich other people’s lives.
If that’s what you’re here for, then get ready to start pedaling.
