What I like about the bike.

What I like about the bike.

Y

Here I sit trying to get my blog on, anticipating our Portugal tour, watching Le Tour and pondering why and what it is I love about cycling. I have cycled my entire life. To this day I still simply enjoy Tooling around on my bicycle with nowhere in particular to go. It makes me feel as though I am still a kid, all the time in the world, a smile on my face.
Not a serious cyclist, I don’t compete, don’t train and rarely go on any sort of group ride, but, I ride every day, mostly as a commuter and the fitness ride every other day or so. I have always commuted, to school as a kid, to work and my daily errands as an adult. Commuting greatly determines where I choose to live, which for my wife and I is Salida Co.


Terri and I each ride custom 29er single speeds. Mine a Don McLung #5 he is a local legend and an icon of the sport. My wife’s main ride is a titanium Black Sheep that was made for a friend of mine who simply out grew it. Our ride, the one we ride together, the one we tour on is also a custom titanium tandem 29er with sns couplers made by James the owner of Black Sheep. We bought that bike with the profits from our first Spec Strawbale home we built over 10 years ago. Finally, to round out our fleet we have a Surly cross bike. That bike is my work bike whose sole purpose is to haul an 8ft Bikes at Work trailer, the equivalent of a pickup truck for a committed cycling commuter, and to compliment we also use a Bob Trailer for the daily errands and for the long tours on the tandem.
So…...what is it I love about cycling. Simplicity, purity, the most efficient form of transportation ever invented, cause I’m lazy, it’s easier than walking and by using for the daily chores takes care of the daily exercise. Perfection in its simplest form.

Wanderlust road consignment store is coming to a sweet end.

Happy 2018!!
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life??”
(Mary Oliver)
As we head into Spring this year...a time for change is upon us! Wanderlust road is ready to go in another direction, a new path, new adventures in this journey called LIFE!....Wanderlust road as a consignment store is coming to a sweet end. Greg and I are always trying to streamline, simplify, and rationalize our purpose, our desires, wants and needs.
We make this decision for a couple of reasons;
We have “Wanderlust”....... We have kids and grandkids that live in other beautiful places. Those grandkids are at that special age where, well, we can still have some influence on how they look at the world. But that’s not all of it.
We have a vision of being on the road, playing music, cycling, adventuring, making soap, finding cool vintage, non vintage Wanderlust curated items and selling these things on the web, through our blog/instagram, as we travel.
Pop up shops? Yes.  A flea market or two....farmers markets...heck yeah!
We want to take our already creative life style and make it even more----------------creative.

 We would also like to express our deep gratitude to all of our customers, consignors and friends that helped to make wanderLust road thrive. Its been a pleasure hosting some great listening room music, Vino Salida Wine Tastings..some Womens Clothing Exchanges..and being a part of Salidas beautiful downtown!.....the fun continues.....
We are no longer excepting consignments.                                                                        wanderLust road will be open for business as usual till April 1st After which we will be garage selling the equipment and supplies until April 15th.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Look for Sales as we near the end of the month.
If per chance, one would like to buy the store and relocate it we would love to talk to you ASAP!
