I picked up my new bike today. I’ve been riding for about a year and a half now and have really grown to love cycling. It has increased my overall fitness and has even improved my rock climbing. And unlike running and climbing, it’s a somewhat social sport. When you ride with folks for hours on end you have some interesting conversations.
Did I need a new bike? Of course I did. My old bike was bad for my image ;-) Plus, Ben rides like a thousand miles a week and I need all the help I can get to keep up with him.
The downside? Now I have no excuses for not being fast.
