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.

  1. A great idea John. I’m a guy who just likes bikes. I normally own around 35 bikes (my latest finds were yesterday I bought a motobecane mirage and an early handbuilt dawes lightning for$75)and enjoy reading about them. I’d like more articles and discussion on topics that I find little of and this site will be a regular visit for me. I hope to learn more about getting older bikes (yes even murry and huffy 10speeds) fixed up and flipped to encourage bike culture in my town.I’m looking for articles on how to promote events in churches and ministries to promote peace and understanding with people of faith.
