I was born into a family of cyclists and am no stranger to the saddle. As a child, I remember our family motto–“Veho vestri bicycle”. Loosely translated, this means, “Ride your bicycle constantly.” I do just that. I ride my bicycle for transportation, for fun, and for transportation to fun.
I still ride my first ten-speed on a daily basis&endash;it’s a Raleigh Super Grand Prix, a hand-me-down from my mother. It was her first ten-speed as well. While I started out with one bicycle, the number soon grew to well over a baker’s dozen, from bicycles found, borrowed, and assembled using available bathroom fixturing.
My life changed three years ago when I learned that with training and diligence, even mortals could fabricate bicycles. Seven’s bicycles don’t spring forth from nothingness. They’re built by humans&msash;humans who love bikes. I am one of those humans.
It’s a chance to do more with bicycles than I ever thought possible.

It’s a dirty job, sometimes.
