My bike is a b*tch.

I have named my (2nd) bike Millificent. She is a witch. Yes, I ride her every day. Yes, she functions. Yes, she holds my water bottle and rolls and has handlebars.

But she also gets flat tires, broken spokes and kaput brakes at least once a week! Gah!!!

She's not really awful, it's just been interesting learning how to care for my bike in a "i-need-this-to-get-to-work" way, instead of an "it's-time-for-one-of-my-yearly-rides" way. I bike to both of my jobs. It's about 3 miles between my apartment and either job, so I'm riding 5.5-6 miles 6 days a week, in addition to a random hike and run that I throw in. I've been too busy to go to the gym, and who wants to when it;s actually sunny outside?

I haven't weighed myself for a wee bit, but I think that will be a more regular occurrence after a shopping trip tomorrow:) gee, I can't even imagine what you would be buying...

Have and excellent middle of your week! Good luck on all your fitness goals!


  1. That's awesome that you ride to work. Very healthy and earth conscious too!!

  2. Craigslist? In all honesty too, my city has a police bike auction about 6 times a year for confiscated/stolen/lost bikes...it can be WELL worth the trip to go! Good luck!
