    NYT: The Bike That Saved My Life

    A great story. For me, bikes are a touchstone that keep me happy and moving forward in good times or bad.

    Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I bought my first adult bicycle while I was divorcing my first husband; mostly out of spite, because he said I could never do a triathlon and goddamnit, I was fed up with being told that I couldn't do things. That once bicycle turned into many, nearly a decade of triathlon, and a wonderful marriage to someone who loves life on two wheels as much as I do. My bike saved my life, too.
