I’d like to applaud local bicycle commuter and Internet blogger Noah, author of kc-bike.blogspot.com, for setting up an experimental “bicycle convoy” that takes Johnson County bicycle commuters to downtown Kansas City every Monday morning.
Noah is a very enthusiastic man who started the bicycle convoy so that he could help enable others to experience the joys of this healthy and environmentally conscious lifestyle, which he recently discovered for himself. From my own experience of commuting, riding with a group is perfect for those new to cycling because more experienced riders will always offer their encouragement and knowledge.
Riding with others is great fun and there is always someone to help out in times of mechanical difficulties (and someone to ride behind if there’s a headwind).
The bicycle convoy meets bright and early on Monday mornings at Skate World on Shawnee Mission Parkway and travels at an easy pace down Merriam Lane and Southwest Boulevard, a longtime favorite route of bicycle commuters.
Anyone who is interested can learn more from Noah’s Web site.
