Combine your love for Biking and Family - the Star Wars way
We always want to ride more… but the “dark side” is always in the way of the force.
We (together with Luke) decided to give you our best and most secret tricks to ride more:
- Prepare you must –
In order to execute the ways of the “force”, first thing is to be prepared! No preparation, No riding. When you’re back from riding, first prepare it as if you are about to go out again. You’ll never know when the “sith lord” hits you…
- To grocer and shopping assignment Ride you should –
Go online, find the best groceries store / home supply shop online and then DO YOUR SHOPPING.
Then take a paper and a pen and write down: “Went grocery shopping… love you”.
Now take your bike and ride!! (don’t forget to tick “self collection” and to actually pick up the stuff) .
Try using panniers for carrying things around. Have a look at bikesatwork.com for more hardcore solutions.
- More bikes you must have –
Redundancy is a must, always have another bike. Just in case… (N+1 when N is the current number of bikes you own)
Also, when you have a bike you didn’t ride for a while you start to feel guilty and find a reason to go out.
If you are having hard time explaining to your partner or yourself why you need another bike try CRC’s Bike Excuse Generator.
- Credit points at home you must collect –
Love your partner, take care of them, make them happy.
Everybody knows that the shortest time unit is from the moment you sit down till the moment you get called to “help around the house”. be proactive, clean, cook, arrange and ride!
When nothing works, get down on your knee pads and beg!
