This crossed my mind more than once on our trip. We had a little more than three weeks to travel, camp and live in a van as we toured the southern island of New Zealand. I didn’t ride a bike once. And so I wondered: Did my bike miss me as much as I missed her? Because I really, really missed her.

It wasn’t what I thought was going to happen that Tuesday. I thought it was just a normal day of getting awesome media coverage for the San Diego Bike Coalition and my favorite local bike shop, Hub + Spoke Cycleworks. We met the news station at 5:30 a.m. to talk about Tour de Fat – New Belgium Brewing’s wacky biking-riding, beer-drinking, music-playing carnival that rolls through San Diego every September – and after the camera crew left, I got inspired.
