Yeah, I actually say "howdy", much to the chagrin of my family. I'm from the south, what can I say? It just comes out naturally and always with a smile! It's generally not followed by the word "partner" though, that's Texas. I have limits to, ya' know. Ha!
But that other word, partner....bicycles and partners go together like peanut butter and jelly. Can you go it alone? Absolutely. Bike rides are super fun solo! But riding with a partner (or better yet, partners!), that's the business, and oh so much fun.
Much like the bike biz, can you go it alone? Yeah, sure you can. But partners, that's what it's all about. The life experiences and satisfaction from helping customers, the business partnerships built with companies that you believe in and they believe in your dream, the rides with family and friends, that's what makes this journey so much fun.
So embrace your partners and perfect strangers alike with a good ol' fashioned "howdy" and enjoy the ride. It's gonna be a good one!
Rider or is it writer?
My name is Adam Harris. I'm a lifelong cyclist. I love bikes. All types of bikes. I hope I can relay the joy that cycling provides me through glimpses into my thoughts and some of my mini adventures.
