And now for something completely different.
I went to the SF Veloswap last Saturday to sell off some stuff, and spent all I made and more on a new toy. Today, I took it for a spin in and around the foothills near home. I'd done some hiking around here, and always thought it would be fun to bang around on a mtb to really cover some territory and see the land. Buying a mtb was the farthest thing from my mind last Saturday, but an opportunity presented itself and I was in a position to take advantage - so I did.
I took it out today in its' inagural spin.... 10.5 miles and abut 2,000' of climbing. The weather was perfect, the scenery was grand, and I had one hell of a good time. This rig is more bike than I will ever need or will ever be able to utilize or appreciate, but I really had a time on it.
Happy Birthday to me!
