Introducing a new blog title: “FreeWheel”

It’s a new decade and after almost ten months with the old, uninspired blog title, “Michael Holloway’s Blog” it was time for a change.  Compared to some of the great titles people who blog here at BikingToronto have come up with – like “Duncan’s City Ride”, “Fletcher Five” and “ThumbShift” – Michael Holloway’s Blog was a tad “un-cool”.

I’ve been thinking about a new title for a while now – this morning, thinking along the lines of what bike parts might best describe what kind of Blog this has evolved into, I thought a freewheel might describe this place well – the more I played with the idea the more I liked it.

A freewheel is a clutch inside the sprocket stack on your rear wheel, it transferees power to the drive wheel when you pedal - Freewheel Blog advocates for cycling in a free thinking manner.

Let me explain; I don’t claim to know everything there is to know about bicycling — although the way I write the things I’m thinking about may give readers a different impression than that — but I’m not affaid to write about stuff that I may not know all that is necessary to know on a particular topic in order to make a useful contribution to the commons, but this is a blog – and for me that means a place to learn and grow. Mistakes, omissions and just plain bad spelling is out there for all to see — all I can say is that any errors I make – I hope I learn from.

As such I’m a bit of a loose cannon in the bicycle advocacy world, or a more positive allusion – A FreeWheel.
