    Nearing Car-Lite living...

    Went to the co-ops open shop night today to see what they had in stock. Showed me a few 3 speed schwins, then this Bianchi Advantage. Held my license while I took it for a test ride, which sold me. Pretty sweet riding bike, shifts easily and should get me around pretty well. I tried to install the racks I have, but no go. So I need to scrounge some new racks up, find a headlight and better tires and I will be good to go. It looks blue, but is really more of deep purple.




    So I have Friday, Saturday, Sunday completely off to hit the bike trails and find good routes to work and school so I can leave my car parked as much as possible.

    According to google maps 6 miles by car and surface roads to campus and the same for work downtown.

    I'll probably tack another mile or two on by taking the bike path most or all of the way. For campus, I can take one bike path north, where I can connect with another path west which would take me just a few blocks north of school. I can take the same path north and connect to a street through one of the parks which would get me to both school and work. So I'll have some fun playing with it over the weekend.

    We used to have a perfect place for me to stash my bike in the office and that was remodeled away. I have another spot picked out, just have to see if it would be OK. I also want to see if the gym across the street would let me use the showers for a small fee. With the humid summers here in Columbus, it might be worth it.
