I started out looking for a bike to ride with my daughter and maybe
our whole family. After I started riding I was encouraged to ride
for my personal exercise. Today I went over 500 miles. I took a
vacation day and went 17.5 miles. I rode up to a Missouri natural
area (Maple Woods) hiked the trail and rode back. Riding
energizes me both physically and mentally.
Now I am looking into comuting to work. I did Friday and I may
do it more often. I have lights and a reflector vest. If I commute
often I plan on getting a second set of lights.
This bike stuff is growing on me.
And I am only riding on a $50 bike. But I have $170 in gear
including slick tires that I bought and put on today.

A road bike may come early next year, but I am really enjoying
what I have now.
