I like bikes.
Behold, my brand-new cross bike. I'm planning on using it as a commuter as well. Indie Rocker and I went to the bike shop today to check it out and see if I'd like it. Buying a bike for me is a little bit tough, since my price point is so low. The bike's heavy, but it's smooth and a lot of fun to ride. I've never bought a brand new bike from a shop before, so this is really exciting for me. I can't wait to start riding to work--I bought a new chain to use with my old steel lock. I may have a low price point, but I still don't want a brand new bike to go anywhere without me!!!!
Seriously? What an awesome weekend.
Quote of the Day: "Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the Democrats, promoting 19th century solutions to 21st century problems. If you don’t like it, ride a bike. If you don’t like the price at the pumps, ride a bike." Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC). As if we needed proof that some people are totally out of touch with reality. Can I get a "hell, yeah" for Rep. Earl Blumenauer?
