      • November 15, 2004
    • What’s a Puffer?
      • Casual biker
      • No spandex
      • Bike less than $500
      • Has another life
      • Not too proud to walk up hills
    • Why bike?
      • Low stress exercise
      • All ages
      • Relatively inexpensive
      • Scenery in slow motion
      • Meet people, not just see things
    • To travel by bicycle is a humble, non-aggressive way to get close to people. It is a way of saying we are passing through with no thought of invasion or conquest, only the simple will to share part of the road. Claude Herve
