Grocery shopping

I think a ride with my partner to go grocery shopping, then stopping on the way home for a coffee and a low fat muffin on a nice summer day is the best. There seems to be no sense of hurry.

doin the town with my daughter

Last year my daughter and I, who was 5 at the time, made a pact to bike whenever possible. Whether to the store, soccer practice, or for ice cream, her personal favorite. It was her first year with a standard bike, we trained her on a standard bike with no pedals, and she was excited! She did great most of the time, but the real improvement was this year. She is now , with a bigger bike, really confident and we have so much fun riding around town. It is so rewarding swing her excel at biking and she is so excited to bike everywhere. It is so rewarding to see the next generation so excited about biking! We rarely get in our car on the weekend and she realizes the benefits for the environment. I am so thankful to live in a bike friendly city, Denver.

Riding my bike

I enjoy riding my bike with my grandson. We usually ride on the river trails and he loves to stop, look at things and take a few pictures. It's great for me as well, I enjoy spending the time with him.

Bike with who you Like

On our first date, my husband and I enjoyed a nice bike ride from UBC down along the beach to a pub on West Broadway. He had slung a portable tape deck over his handlebars. Needless to say, I was hooked. He is my favourite person to ride with. Even if he is way faster than I am.

Who i enjoy riding with

I most enjoy riding with the wind. Not an easy thing to accomplish where I live. I would say I am successful about 3/4 of the time.. The other quarter is an in-your-face, suck-it-up and ride like hell kind of ride. But boy, does it make you feel alive.

Family Riding

Last year I started riding with my daughter through town to soccer practice. It's great to see her working her way through the streets and a fun way to spend time together. Her friends are jealous after practice when we bike off and they have to get in their cars!

Biking with an Expert

I love to cycle with my husband. He is much more experienced and faster, because he bike commutes to work every day. However, he happily rides at a more leisurely pace when I'm around. It's also pretty handy to have his extensive mechanical knowledge and tool kit with you when something goes wrong. The fact that he's memorized the location of EVERY bike store in Seattle can come in handy too, like during the time my chain snapped in the middle of an intersection! I'm so glad he's willing to slow down and take me with him on our weekend biking adventures.

Riding with David

My first date with my husband David, was on a tandem. I was a very inexperienced rider and he had been riding forever. On that first ride, I thought I was going to die! Whereas I love the breaks and coasting, he just didn’t seem to know that a bike could break or coast. But since I didn’t know David from the next guy, I had to trust that my friend who set me up with him knew that he could ride a bike. Buy the end of the ride, he had my complete trust and I needed more of him and biking. Dating and marrying David was the same as dating and marrying biking. We still ride together every chance we get. He has learned a little more about breaking and there is one hill close to the house that we always coast down.

I enjoy riding with my buddy Bruce on Sunday mornings...he with his clipless shoes and pedals, and me with my Keens and platform pedals.

Lucky to ride

I love riding with my 2 kids age 7 and 9. On our ride to school we can see creatures in the air, water, and land. We watch the scene change from day to day, rain or shine. They are fierce riders - often way ahead of me. Kids at school beg to ride their bikes, say they are lucky to be able to ride to school. Not so, I'm the lucky one!!

Best person to ride with?

The one you can kiss at the end of a ride.

I like riding on and off-road with friends, family, and co-workers, but convoy related issues often crop up; speed differences, traffic light separations, route choice etc that can cause problems ranging from people not enjoying themselves to doing things like running lights or stopping in dangerous locations. I most enjoy riding by myself or with others (birds and bees included) who are going their own way at their own speed (especially when they signal) and if it works out that we are going the same way at the same speed for part of the ride, great.

Riding with the family

I love getting out with my wife and her parents for a lovely ride along the river. Occasionally we stop to cool our heels in the water and a new pair of Keens would make it even more pleasurable! Love your magazine and can't wait for the next issue.

Riding with my kids

I just started riding with my kids on a double trail-a-bike and I love to be that close to them to hear what their saying and experience the team work involved with all three of us together.

My Wife

I love riding with my wife to the point it's pure joy.
We live in a bike friendly City, Richmond VA, it has a brilliant park system and trails that would make other Cities jealous.
In fact it did make others quite jealous when Outside Magazine's readers made Richmond the best Recreational River City in the U.S. in their October '12 issue.
Words can't convey how much fun it is to ride with your life-partner in a City as great as ours.
We've been getting Momentum off the rack for a good while as it fits our lifestyle perfectly, we've had our fingers crossed you would go monthly and we could add it too our list of subscriptions.
However, with contests and giveaways like this, I think you've gained another subscriber.
Thanks Momentum, we're looking forward to the next issue.

Enjoy riding with my Malti-poo

I love riding my bicycle with my little malti-poo dog. She sometimes rides in my rear basket and other times rides in a pull-behind trailer. Mostly we ride to our community dog park to visit with other canine friends. She loves the open air experience as much as I do!

I usually ride with my family, it's exercise for everyone. My older kid is on his bike and the little on is on a trail-gator. We take a lunch on the beach.

I usually ride alone, but on a summer vacation, I make a long ride with my girlfriend. The babysitter is with the kids. We relax on our bike, long, slow ride.

Win a keen

I enjoy riding with people that appreciate vintage road bikes. GOoD vintage road bikes are hard to come by so people appreciate vintage road bikes are even harder to come by. So anybody rides: Zunow, Cramerotti or Colnago?

I enjoy biking with someone who knows different route to get to somewhere that we both go. I love learning a fellow cyclist's secret passages!

Got coffee?

My best bike buddy is whoever is buying me coffee after the ride. :D Of those potential suitors, Ramie is incredibly knowledgeable (about bikes, the universe, and everything) and patiently answers my stupid questions, so every ride + conversation is a good one.

Me and my stoker

Great to have my wife riding with me on our tandem. Like everything else in a marriage it requires some sensitivity, and give-and-take.

Dou Leo more than 1 year ago

I most enjoy riding with me...

...which may seem odd to some. When I am biking on my own I have plenty of time and space for self reflection, creative thought and problem solving. Biking alone has also become a kind of meditation for me. I get to enjoy being in silence with my thoughts, my hopes and my dreams. I come home to my family exercised, refreshed and better off for my time spent with just me and my bike!

My favorite riding buddy

I love to ride with my wife. She pushes me to the limits when we ride. I get to ride with a lot of different aged riders, but few are as good looking as my girl, and not near as fast.

Who I Most Enjoy Riding With

My wife is my favorite riding companion. We got married a year ago and she had not ridden a bike since childhood. I ride for transportation all the time and she does not drive. It was not easy for her to learn to ride and deal with traffic and I was concerned that she would have no way to get around with me. But after a few months practice she told me: “I love riding with you, my husband!"

birds and flowers

I don't often get to ride with others, since most of my riding is done during a commute. The person I get to ride with the most is my boyfriend. I appreciate riding with him because he notices the birds and flowers like I do.

My daughter has been my main motivator in keeping me healthy. She's a student-athlete and pushes me to stay in shape. Guess she wants me around for awhile....

I most enjoy riding by myself. It is a time to leave everything else behind, focus on the pedaling and surrounding scenery.

Keen Clearwater CNX contest

I have been wearing various Keen footware for several years and like the boxy toes - no more squishing my feet into the latest narrow fashion.
I would also like to see them made with hemp or other non-leather materials.

And I love to win things.

I enjoy riding with my husband. We work different schedules, so on the weekends we love to ride our bikes along the shore.

Wore down Keens

Four years my Keens w/ cycling cleats have propelled me through this city, along the highways and over trails. In the neighbourhood of 15 000 km logged on these sandals, and the tread is finally starting to pull away from the hard sole. Gimme a freebee or I'll just buy some again. I'm a fan! If you don't win, buy some.

One request, make some w/o any leather so us twenty plus year vegans don't have to justify the less than 10cm square of leather to the newbie vegans who still think that their gonna make everybody in the world vegan. Try hemp.....Everybody LOVES hemp. Peace out!

My daughter

I most enjoy riding with my daughter, who is seven years old and just learned to ride a bike on her own within the last year. Prior to that, we used to have a blast riding around together on the trail-a-bike. When she learned to ride on her own last summer, though, it opened a whole new world of excitement and freedom to her. My most memorable quote from her is: "Daddy, who would want to go by four wheels when you can do it with two!" As an educator and advocate for more trips by bike, especially for our kids, I have never been more proud!

Riding with my Loves!

I love riding my bike and better yet, riding with my partner. We go for these rides where we each take turns to lead and follow the other person. That means that there is no pre-determined route and it makes for fun, spontaneous rides in the city :)

I love riding with my two little boys! Hearing them chatter, notice wildlife, and call for "faster, Mommy, faster!" always makes me happy.

My Entire Family!

Now my husband, our two grown daughters and our 7 year old granddaughter all have bikes. A family cruise along the Long Beach bike path would be a wonderful ride.

Kellie Morris more than 1 year ago

My husband, of course

Although he used to ride ahead of me and was more fearless on the city streets, our biking styles are now much more in sync. Whether we're biking to work together on the Dunsmuir viaduct or struggling up/whizzing down hills on a gulf island, I always want to have my husband by my side.

My wife is the best

Especially when leading out...and in spite of her opposition to my purchasing Keens. Thus I MUST win some!

Scott Cramer more than 1 year ago

Keen Clearwater riding partner

I most enjoy riding with my cycling group, the Wascana Freewheelers. Riding in a group setting, discovering new areas of the city, and the camaraderie over ice-cream after our Wednesday-night outings all make for fantastic rides.

Nothing beats riding a beautiful trail along side my husband pulling my daughter in her trailer. The best part is when she starts to sing songs to pass the time!

For your riding pleasure

I like riding with my spouse because he often leads the way and has also been known to rescue me from the briers when I have ventured off the trail and given first aid when necessary.

Ann Dowdy more than 1 year ago

Favorite Biking Partner(s)

Nothing quite brings me the same pleasure as biking, very slowly, down some of Maine's many, many, trails, accompanied by my partner with our dog jogging alongside (hence the slowness). It really encompasses the beauty of our surroundings to see them so slow & with our dog's viewpoint so nearby...
