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.”

Do you have a streak? If so, Like us on Facebook and share your streak and story with the world.

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.

What’s stopping you from your streak?

20 Years Strong

Jim Langley, a former editor at Bicycling magazine has ridden his bike every day for the past 20 years, some of those days spent on his Bike Friday while travelling.

Wow!

There’s not much more than we can say. We just read in the latest Bicycle Retailer magazine that our old friend, Jim Langley, has successfully doubled his long-time goal.

Years ago Jim, a former editor at Bicycling magazine, decided he wanted to attempt to ride every day for 10 years. This December, he completed 20 years of riding every day! Way to go Jim. That’s nothing less than astounding!
