Last night we taught a Bicycle Proficiency Badge class for the Brooklyn Prospect Pathfinders of the Baden Powell Scouts Association.
Sometimes, in the winter, it can get a little lonesome at the shop. We keep the same hours year-round, but the staff gets spread out a little thinner, so consequently I have time in the shop on my own. Normally, that time is spent pounding away on the Microsoft Surface keyboard, but this morning was different.
After recently getting Wilderness First Aid Certified, I want back and took a hard look at my First Aid Kit we use on Shop Rides, Hikes, Camping Trips, Micro-Tours and Tours.
Packing the “Ten Essentials” whenever you step into the backcountry, even on day hikes or rides, is a good habit. On a basic trip you may use only a few of them or none at all. It’s when something goes awry that you’ll truly appreciate the value of carrying these items that could be essential to your survival.
We had a great time hosting the LifeCycle Holiday party at the shop last night.
Welcome to LifeCycle Biking (www.lifecyclebiking.com)

On November 30, Genesiss or Brujofnyc (professional NYC Messenger) gave a talk and demonstration of winter riding techniques in the shop.
