A New Definition of Jewish Cycling

What is Jewish Cycling? Well, while I may have a few definitions of what it may be, it's still a very unexplored question with the potential for many answers, but as The Complete Jewish Cyclist, I will offer up the first:

Jewish cycling is riding to minyan in the frigid predawn hours through fresh, deep powder from a recent blizzard on your cyclocross bike with a tallit and tefillin in your backpack, and then saying shacharit while wearing, amongst other things, Shimano SPD shoes wrapped in Pearl Izumi thermal booties.

Wow, and here I was thinking I was alone as a Jewish bicyclist, let alone an observant one!

I joined the group on Facebook. I look forward to the conversations there!
