I Love Riding in the City – Dan Kehlenbach
Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
My wife is active duty military and we are currently stationed in Puerto Rico. We live in Old San Juan and by far the best way around the city is by bike. Traffic can be quite challenging and the roads here weren’t designed to handle the volume of vehicles that currently make their way in and out of the city.
Old San Juan is a gem in terms of history and architecture. By using my bike to get around, I can enjoy and take in all the sites. I am currently using a Brompton to get around. No bike racks, no problem – I’ll just take my bike in with me.
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
Hands down Anchorage, Alaska. You can get all over the city on multi-use trails. There’s all kinds of great restaurants, bookstores and parks that can be accessed by bike. Studded tires makes it possible to ride year round. Oh, just watch out for the moose. They’re all over!
Why do you love riding in the city?
There’s so much to take in while in the city and riding around allows me to really enjoy it without worrying about parking, traffic jams, and all the hassles about driving. Photography is a hobby of mine and I’ll always have a camera with me while riding, and this is a great city to photograph!
