With classes over with(whew!) I've managed to get a job at a local hardware shop. Cool thing is I am 3 miles one way from my work, and have a 1 hr lunch break which I pedal home for a meal. So I figure the 5 days a week I work i am riding 12 miles minimum!!! Thats a good way to guarantee I get some nice riding in on top of the work I do on the clock. I've been taking the MTB as it is bombproof and has the rack for my bag. So i am losing weight and earning cash doing so...forget the gym.
I hope to shed 20lbs by the end of the summer which will put me around 200lbs(I'm 6'1"). And with the new cash flow I can FINALLY afford to get a nice rig for the weekend rides.
