Launched in 2009, Suburban Assault is about using my bicycle to explore my neighborhood, hometown and neighboring cities to discover more about my community and where I live. It’s also about using the bicycle as a practical means of transportation for short trips.
When I started (and because of where I live) it seemed there were very few people with the same interest in non-categorized, non-sport, practical biking. I was completely wrong. I’ve since discovered a whole community of friends that feel the same way about riding – that it should just be fun.
My goal is to bring back the grass roots nature of riding just to ride. No categories. No classifications. Just two wheels, two pedals and a love for discovering while riding.
Although I appreciate all aspects of bicycling, my main focus is NOT sport cycling. That being said, Suburban Assault is also:
– not about speed, distance or endurance
– not about being rugged, extreme or hard core
– not about expensive, tricked out bikes or aerodynamic spandex (although there’s nothing wrong with it)
– not about being rebellious and breaking laws
Suburban Assault is about riding whenever and wherever, while wearing whatever. No matter what the route or destination is, I love to get out and ride – while obeying the traffic laws and yielding to pedestrians.
Although the name has a suburban focus, it’s about all the places that I ride and explore, which also applies to URBAN or RURAL locations.
I’m not a writer. I’m an art director who doesn’t always check his facts, barely proof reads and seldom knows how to spell correctly. If you happen to catch some misinformation or one of my more-than-occasional grammar errors, please feel free to let me know. Just leave a comment or shoot me an email at wezensky (at) gmail.com.
Suburban Assault HQ:
I am based in Richardson, Texas – a small, suburb town just north of Dallas.
Here are the bikes that I ride.
Along with doing this blog, I am the founder of Bike Friendly Richardson, and a very active bicycle advocate in the City of Richardson and across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. I describe myself as a “Practical Cyclist and Bike Commuter.”
I am an active BikeDFW Board member, and their Director of Communications. I am also a League Cycling Instructor (#3760) and a member of BikeTexas, the League of American Bicyclists and the Rails To Trails Conservancy.
