The View is Always better from the Saddle

HandlebarviewA ride,  good or bad is a great way to free the mind and the view is always better from the saddle.  On my latest ride I continued my exploration of the Broadneck Peninsula riding a few new roads and of course including many old favorites. I’m finding great freedom in my bike riding of late. The most surprising finds from the rides have been the number of farms I have come across and the amount of open space. Yes the Broadneck Peninsula is developed but it isn’t as developed as one may believe. Although it does sometime feel that people are constructing homes in every lot available. Then I came across the fork in the road sign and had to make a Saris Thelma Handlebarview fork closedecision. The decision of which way to go was easy, down the road I hadn’t traveled. That sign snapped me back to reality a little. Maybe that is what I should be doing, traveling down the roads I haven’t traveled, exploring new things, pushing myself. A good idea for bike rides an even better idea for life.

About Ernest

Ernest is the owner of the Crofton Bike Doctor located in the Village of Waugh Chapel Shopping Center. Ernest has been in the industry since 1989 when he first started to work at the Bike Doctor of Arnold. During that time I developed a love for cycling and retail. I graduated from the University of Maryland and live and ride locally.

I enjoy riding off road and on the road as well as doing a little bike touring. As a teenager I did a trip in Maine and then over to Novia Scotia which helped cement my love for riding. Since then I have done tours in the Canyons of Utah as well as several trips along the C&O Canal. Today I have both mountain bikes and road bikes that I enjoy riding. One of the most exciting things now is my wife is beginning to develop a passion for riding and we have begun mountain bike together as well as some light road riding.
