Best advice for someone who wants to 'ride MORE'? Do it. Ride more. Make a goal, distance or days ridden, meet that goal and then exceed it. Figure out how to grocery shop by bike and then do it. You can learn everything you need to know about biking/commuting by shopping and transporting food on your bicycle.

The ‘FUN’ bike: Otso Cycles Waheela S
All time favorite bike: Dawes Track Bike - the gateway drug!
Favorite ride/race: Noma to Noma. 150 miles race around Lake Pontchartrain. Just finishing is a grand accomplishment but when you really try and push it to the next level and complete it as fast as you are able to, that's where you really fight some demons!
Favorite piece of cycling kit: RMB Vest! Blocks wind on the chest. Layers easily. Packs up super small. Double zipper for temperature regulation.

What would you change about cycling if you could? Bottom bracket "standards". Can we just all agree that threads in frames work really well?
Best advice for someone who wants to 'ride MORE'? Just get out there. Don't let your fears of "I'm not as strong/fast/good as you guys/gals" keep you from trying your best. Just because you may not be able to hang with the ‘fast’ people, doesn't mean you cannot get a challenge out of the experience.
