my bike’s name is…

off and on, i’ve thought about naming my bike. it’s a random thought that i finally decided to entertain for longer than a moment.

then other questions popped up. do bikes have a gender? does the fact that it was built for a woman mean it should have a woman’s name? should i pick a few names and take a fb poll?

i quickly dismissed them all and thought of a generic option. “300.” then i quickly vetoed that sucker due to pop culture references and moved on to “30” which has much deeper significance. after all, i’ve been on a challenge to ride 300 (hence the first choice) miles in 30 days and i turned 30 this year. so there we have it. my black trek beauty now has a name that encapsulates my current year of life and the current challenging month of exercise.

30. it now means you can do it.

can u dig it?

  1. My friend, now traveling through Spain on pilgrim trails(running with bulls and camping near watch towers and moorish castles) has taken along his beloved mountain bike. He calls her (a male bike) “Negrita” and takes photos of her leaning alone against old alleyways and new pastoral springs. Those two have been through a lot together. I think it's wonderful that she/it/him…has a name. Have fun!
