beats traffic…

I am trying to save money and get myself in better shape. The bicycle is a perfect solution. I’m not wasting my money on gas…or the gym!

Monday, I had a  meeting in Augusta (20 miles away), and the weather was in the high 40’s, so I packed my bags, and hit the road with a thermos of hot herbal tea and plenty of time to make the meeting…

While rolling up a hill, I made a mistake with my gears, and broke my chain.  I have a repair kit, but never had to fix a chain.  I wasn’t sure it went around the derailer, so I called my dad (a cycling maniac) who talked me through the process.

I ended up 5 minutes late for the meeting, but it was better than being stuck in traffic.
