Happy Blogiversary To ME!

I just realized two things right now.

One, this blog is now over a year old (started last May 7th, 2007). Wow. Time flies when you are having fun.

And two, one year ago from this past weekend was my first real trail ride on a bike where I learned all sorts of fun biking things like how to endo over your handlebars and how to hike a bike.

Does this mean I have to quit with the excuses of sucking and stop calling myself a beginner? Yes. It most definitely does. Consider it done.

In other biking news, I am now the proud owner of a $25 (such a negotiator I am) lime green Huffy Finalist classic road bike. I am pretty sure that Austin Powers may have ridden this bike in 1969 to stay in shape for his spy duties. Or at least someone in 1969 did something with this bike. The gearing is for sure an antique, but I think it is smoking and after a little lube and some adjusting, we had ourselves a nice little ride.

I think I will call this bike, the Green Gadget. Do all road bikes make you feel like you have a bad case of scoliosis? Also, have a gander at our amazing epoxied floor.

Well done on both fronts, on the second though may I say that the colour could cause nausea when ridden. Hope you read the warning
