I recently found this blog, bikeyface, and realized that sometimes we forget the reason we cycle. For the fun of it. Just for fun. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it. On her page, “What is a bikeyface?” Bekka illustrates (very well, I might add) that a bikeyface is the face you get when you’re enjoying biking to it’s fullest. Cruising around, fast, slow, whatever!Here’s my favorite bikeyface from her website:


Too often we get bogged down by the negativity of complaining about the bad side of cycling: lack of space, respect, cars, people, dogs, etc. Sometimes I forget that I cycle because I enjoy it. Go read her blog; its pretty funny and reminds us of the best reasons to cycle and enjoy life! Don’t forget the reason you started and don’t get lost in the negative aspects, otherwise no one will want to join you. Get out there and enjoy some fresh air, and have fun!

Oh, and who cares what kind of bike you have? NO ONE can tell you how to enjoy something, as long as you enjoy it yourself. Ride a cruiser, singlespeed, BMX, mountain bike, road bike, tri bike, 26-er, 29-er, 27.5-er, TANDEM (oops, slipped on the CAPS for a second, oh well), 3wheel, 4wheel even! Ride in the sun, ride in the rain, and even ride in the snow if you want (it’s fun). Or don’t! Grab some panniers, get a trailer, pack a tent and go for a camping trip, or just ride to the end of the block and back; it doesn’t matter. Just ride when it’s fun for you and for no other reason. Ride fast, ride slow, but most of all ride fun, and try to be nice to people. Respect and get respect and enjoy the wonderful sport of cycling.

And thanks for reading my blog! I hope I can keep it positive and uplifting for you and will try to keep the complaints to a minimum. Cheers!

    I TOTALLY LOVE the idea of bikeyface! 🙂

    • I think it describes the perfect sentiment we should have when doing our respective sports. Keep up the good work, btw, Sandra.

        Agreed. I will remember that a long time. I may have to post a photo of my swimmyface. 😉
        And thank you. I have had to take two days off due to illness, but thankfully I have not put on weight! It is a new me! :-). I cannot wait to run again. . .
