My husband, Agapito, has been cycling to work for the past 30 years. He remembers back in 1991 when he made the decision to ride his bike to work. We were married in 1990, and that winter we had moved into our first house. He had started taking the bus to work, but he found he didn’t like the public transit system. So, he started riding his bike. He never looked back.
He rides in all kinds of weather. Winnipeg winters can be brutally cold.
His face covering gets all frosty in the cold weather. The winters are hard on bikes and he figures he went through about 7-8 so far. He has always bought used bikes.
He rides rain or shine!
I wonder how long he will continue to ride his bike?
Congratulations on 30 years of cycling, Agapito! I wish you many more years of riding your bike.

Wow! Now that’s impressive! As a former avid cyclist (I waited years for a Tour de France sponsor/team to pick me up….at least in my dreams). What can I say but “roll on Gapito”!

Gapito = Agapito (I am just a tired caregiver with one eye open but I apologize nonetheless for misspelling his name in my response)
Wow what an accomplishment – especially in Winnipeg. Congratulations
