We asked some Brooklyn Bicycle riders how riding a bike has changed their lives--in little ways and big--and here's what they said...

Ride Out, Smell the Roses 

Whitney Campeau of lifestyle blog See Shop Eat Docruises around LA on her Brooklyn Bicycle. Soak up her style on instagram.
"I find that whenever I ride my bike I discover new things (a pretty tree, a gorgeous house, a new coffee shop) that I wouldn't have even noticed if I were zooming past in my car. I love that biking helps you to be more in the moment and connected to your surroundings."

Small Changes, Huge Impact

Christina and Robert of Arizona lifestyle blog New Darlings make a stylish pair on their Willow and Driggs bicycles. Follow their adventures on instagram.

"Since both getting bikes back in December, we have made some small changes to our everyday routines that have made a big impact on the way we live.  Our home is in central Phoenix, so all the great spots are so close and bike trails are everywhere. Taking our bikes out for a spin and pedaling to the nearest coffee shop on Sunday mornings, then stopping at the local market on the way home makes weekends more fun and gives us the bit of exercise we need."

Exercise and clarity

Joe Miragliotta of men's lifestyle blog Joe's Daily and men's lifestyle magazine @mens.magazine zips around LA on our popular Wythe.

"I may be the only person in Los Angeles who doesn't own a car. Since starting my business and working from home, I decided it was time to ditch the car and get a bike. Life changing! Not only do I get a great workout, I've found it peaceful and a great way to clear my head in between long writing sessions on the couch."

Keep riding! It'll certainly change your life in small, fun ways--and very likely in big, empowering ways. And we'd love to know what biking has done for you! Share your experiences in the comments or tweet at us.

When a company delivers what they promised, and in perfect condition, they must be thanked and applauded.
I couldn’t be happier with my two bicycles and accessories.
Thank you.

Loving it

As someone who hasn't ridden in over 40 years, this bike made for an easy adjustment back into flow of riding. I was nervous at first but thought it best to pull the trigger and let that be my motivation to get back on the horse. The ride is smooth and the seat is comfortable. I'm still learning to turn corners but with practice I'm sure I'll feel more confident. No regrets.

Thanks for sharing Lauren. We're glad you're back out riding. -Ryan Zagata

💕love love our new bikes!!

We waited a year for our new bikes and they were so worth the wait! I have a Willow and my husband has the Driggs 7. The 7 speed is perfect for Florida riding. Danielle was so patient with us throughout the process and kept us updated as we waited for our bikes to be back in stock due to COVID. We love them and would highly recommend them! Love the company and all the accessories we purchased! Thank you ☺️ so much Danielle!!!

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback Cindy. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 3 - Coo

I had been cycling through different bike brands all winter long. Really spinning my wheels about it. Finally, I came across Brooklyn Bicycle Company after a long and tiresome process. I pumped the brakes on buying from another brand and decided to get the Bedford 3. During my first ride, the bike spoke volumes. And not to switch gears, but the staff was incredibly helpful and the buying process smooth - never an uphill battle. Above all else the bike was reasonably priced, even after I adjusted for inflation.

You won’t regret this bike, it’s honestly amazing. I’m actually trying to get my friend to buy one right now, but he prefers unicycles. Yeah, he struggles socially and can’t handle-bars! It’s a vicious cycle.

This is literally the best bike I’ve ever owned.

Shout out to the folks at Silk Road Cycles, you folks are wheelie nice.

Thanks so much for sharing Joseph and for the seemingly futile attempt to get your mate on one of our steeds. We also appreciate you acknowledging the efforts the team puts forth to make sure things go smoothly. -Ryan Zagata

beautiful and functional with a few tweaks!

I love this rack! It looks really sleek on the bike and I get a lot of compliments on it! It's also really sturdy and functional -- however, it does cause the wheel to bend to the side due to the added weight so I also added a spring to the front wheel to keep it from falling over when the basket is installed. With the spring, the bike can stand up on its own with the kickstand. It's been great -- also definitely recommend a bungee cord with it! Have yet to see a higher quality or more aesthetically pleasing rack.

Thanks so much for sharing Kate. As you suggested, we strongly recommend a wheel stabilizer with this as the added weight of front carrier will cause the wheel to turn. You used the term 'bend' but I suspect you meant the wheel will turn when the bike is stationary. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata
