Hello world!

Welcome to Bikejohn.  I’m John.

I’ve been a collector, restorer, and dealer in vintage bicycles for a lot of years now, so my interest in bikes is a little different. I’d like to see more people ride bicycles for a lot of reasons, and do what I can to encourage that.

So what’s the purpose of another blog about bikes? A couple, I hope. One is to encourage a return of bicycles into mainstream society. Bicycles were once a part of everyday life (and still are in many countries), but should be everywhere. I’m not advocating laws, mass events, or the like, but a simple decision to return to a better, more healthy, more productive way of life.

Another purpose of this blog is to share things: ideas, images, websites, events, tips, and other blogs that promote bicycling, or at least are interesting–to me. I hope that eventually others will share the same, too.

So bear with me. Blogs tend to take on a life of their own, or just quietly fade away. Hopefully this one will find its way.
