My name is Tyson Blades. I am based in Santa Barbara, CA, USA. I love bicycles more than many things in life because they are the perfect form of transportation. The human body is not only the most efficient engine on earth, it is also the greenest. Bikes are awesome. But they are nothing without their engines. People are what make them go. Try getting a car to go 53 miles on a burrito. It simply can’t be done.
