I bought a fairly inexpensive bike today and was able to ride it right out of the store. Spent about an hour riding next to the shore line, then back home. It's a generic mountain bike that cost less than $100 so it'll get the job done. I'm thinking about getting a different seat and grippier handle bars since those were two things that I wasn't digging too much. Other than that it's great! I now have a method of cross training. Woo hoo!
T-minus 18 hours til Training day #1.
I look forward to this journey!
By the way, my entire right toe nail fell off just now. What the heck?!? It doesn't hurt but it looks kinda gross. Sorry, TMI, I know.
