Giant Bicycle gravel tire promotional video
I love bicycles. In fact I love most things on wheels that require straddling. Santa brought me a Royce Union Sting ray at the age of five (despite the fact that my list specified a Schwinn that included a drawing of it and everything), and never stopped. I eventually got that Schwinn which was a souped-up version called the “Pea Picker” which had a springer front end and a stick shift on the top bar which I’m sure many a youth had a voice raising encounter with. My youth was consumed with bmx, minibikes, motorcycles and racing motocross. I’ve owned all sorts of dirt oriented motorcycles and mountain bikes throughout my adult life. My most recent toy is a 2019 Specialized Turbo Levo Carbon Comp. For those who don’t speak moto, it’s a very high end, electric pedal assist mountain bike with full suspension.

Incidentally, that is me singing, playing guitar and harmonica over a re-written Tampa Red song called “Can’t get the stuff’
