Break free!

I once spotted a bumper sticker that read “You are not stuck in traffic.  You ARE traffic.  Buy a bike.  Break free!”  I did buy a bike and it was probably the smartest thing I’ve ever done.

bikers always seem like cool people. I don't know if I will become one of them, but they (you) will most certainly have my respect.

loving that quote!
I used to live in the city where you could not ride a bike at all... the streets are not adequate for them, the weather is freaking hot you'd die in the middle of the road by dehydration..honestly.. no one rides bikes there.. unless early in the mornings for workout or something..which I did, but it's not as fun as riding it to get around town during your daily activities... BUT now that I'm here, in such a cool beach place..I'm thinking of getting one too! cool post!

I hope you get one Ana!

Ivette, a bike would be perfect in Playa del Carmen. It's getting so hot here now- soon I won't be able to ride mine as much :(
