Picture upload isn't working or I'd show you my new ride. Yup, I couldn't stand it so I went and bought myself a mountain bike. I rode it a good 20 minutes before deciding to take it home. It is a Giant Rincon and will do me just fine. I also took it to the highway and back on the dirt road. It is hard getting used to the shorter peddling circumference so I jacked the seat way up. Not too bad though.
I got my women's bicycling book I ordered used from an Amazon.com seller. I read a bit before I bought the bike. I maybe jumped the gun on the bike but so be it. I have it now and will be using it to get in shape.
Ds16 put the computer on it for me so I can see mileage, speed and calories burned (as soon as I set it up, didn't want to tell him my weight, hehe). I am only interested in the mileage anyway. Now I can keep track of it. Don't get all weepy when you see "1/2 mile", hahaha!
