Tad is a fairly normal guy who, like most other folks, has some quirks. This blog is about his particular obsession with riding a hulking Dutch bike to work. Tad doesn’t do this to save the world or limit carbon emissions, he does it because he likes it.
His home, Minneapolis, is regarded as one of the top three bike-riding cities in the USA. That would mean something if the USA was a bike riding nation, but it’s not. Still, with my beloved Dutch “Opa” or Bakfiets, and some common sense, biking about town is quite safe. It beats going to the gym or getting ridiculously fat puttering around in a Hummer.
Tad lives with his wife, Lisa, and their two sons, Marek (6) and Silas (3).
