Biking to a healthier work-lifestyle in Public Relations  

Biking to a healthier work-lifestyle in Public Relations  

By | Mixte Culture, Uncategorized, We Likes Bikes | No Comments

I can’t recall a time when my family wasn’t struggling with weight. My first memory of dieting is from my middle school years. I distinctly remember my mom singing the benefits of one slice of bread filled with an entire pack of those paper-thin slices of fake sandwich meat. I remember the year that my dad’s mom came to live with us, and our entire family gained 10 pounds each (I can’t remember if it was from the stress or the eternally full bowl of M&Ms).

I’m like the burned out, overweight dad of three who still talks about his triumphant year as a quarter back in high school. It’s these moments, where we reach the pinnacle of our achievements, that set the bar for all things that come afterwards.

My New Bike and My Longest Ride Ever

By | Exercising, Mixte Culture, Pure Adventure, Uncategorized, We Likes Bikes | No Comments

Are you looking to get into riding a bike, but don’t know where to start? I recently transitioned from my trusty— and also rusty—beach cruiser, which could really only get me around my lovely town of Ocean Beach, to a road bike, which can take you much, much further. I work for a communications company built on bicycling, so I thought it may be a good thing to do.
