New-to-me blog, Copenhagenize.com has a tongue in cheek article on determining if you live in a city that is very bikey or not. Although their recent post, 18 Ways to Know If You Have Bike Culture, is mostly for kicks, I was reminded that I was mocked by my father and his buddies last month when I mentioned something about my bike mechanic.
“Bike mechanic? Who has a bike mechanic?”
Old school guys, but all of a sudden there I am smack in the middle of bullet point #11: You and your friends have repeated discussions about which bike repair shop in your neighbourhood is the best for price and service.
I guess it makes a little sense, we are after all, 19th on The List! (ok, we still have a ways to go…)
