I guess Im an official Clyde now...I got a BIKE!

The wife and I went to the bike store to look around today and she bought me a bike...I LOVE my wife! I got a TREK 7000 and rode it home. I LOVE that thing! The ride is smooth and it is a DEFINITE workout! We have hills here, and those were harder than I expected...but I made it up them.

She is making me run errands with her now, and all I wanna do is RIDE!

Did I say I LOVE my wife?

Let us know when you've worn out the first set of tires. I mean that in a nice way.
Ride, Captain, Ride.
