BIKEBIKE  a Touring + Commuting Forum

Communities are better places to live, work, and play

when more people ride bikes.  


Think about biking to work but unsure how to pack or what route to take?

Ready for roadside emergencies? Prepared to fix a flat?

Gaze across the lake and wonder what it would be like to pedal around it?

BIKEBIKE Commuting+Touring Forum is for you!  bike to the beach
