Jim Langley has ridden his bike every day for the past 22 years. That’s an amazing streak. His numbers are staggering:

  • 22 years
  • Nearly 8,000 days
  • More than 120,000 miles

Since December 30th, 1993, the former technical editor of Bicycling magazine has ridden every day. It’s a mind-boggling streak that begs the question: How did he do it? Perseverance and determination are certainly key factors, but Langley also has another element to credit: His Bike Friday Pocket Rocket.

“I could never have kept the streak alive without my Bike Fridays,” Langley said. “Some of my all-time favorite rides were made possible only because I had my Pocket Rocket along with me, like riding up and down the Haleakala volcano in Maui. If you’ve never done that you need to.”

If you don’t have a streak, what better way to begin one than on a new Bike Friday Pocket Rocket or Pocket Rocket Pro?

It all starts with having a bike that fits your body and is equipped to do what you need it to do. Bike Fridays can fold and travel with you. Our cargo bike the Haul-a-Day can do the work of your SUV while you get exercise.

    I ride at least 4 times a week, or 200 times a year and can’t take it if I don’t I makes me feel so much healthier and relaxed. I now ride a cargo bike and do almost all chores with it. I ride around 3,000 miles per year.
