While Aj has been wearing out his tires on the road, I prefer to ride off-road. To me, it offers everything a bike ride needs from dirt, logs and gravel to the climbs and my favorite downhills. Besides, if you have not been outside the past five days, you are not living. The weather has been absolutely perfect. Mid to upper 70's, low humidity and sunlight. It already feels like fall and I am enjoying every minute of it.

Jake and I have been riding the past few days together and we decided to take a camera out tonight and fool around. We biked the Twins Springs area that we rarely ever ride because it is away from most of the trails. There is a pretty good climb to the top on the trail, but most of our fun came on the spring.

Aside from biking, I have been working most every day at Pepsi. Reality has checked me back in and I move back to school on Sunday. I am looking forward to seeing everybody again and having a room again.

Killing Two Birds With One Stone

I am now a proud new owner of another bicycle after a week or so of using my mountain bike to trek across town, I decided the need for a commuter bike was necessary. A lighter frame and skinnier tiers have made my rides to work and friends houses much more efficient and less time consuming. If you are thinking about riding your bicycle to work, grocery store, class, and for your around town errands here are some of the reasons that helped make my decision.

#1: Saving Money

People are always complaining about the rising price of gas and food. My bicycle gets about a million miles to the gallon and is the most efficient way to get around town.

#2: Better for You

Your time is valuable and what a better way to fit in exercise during your daily routines.

#3: Better for the Environment

This can be your gift to share with others. No pollution, no noise, no congestion=no-brainer.

#4; It's Fun

"Driving a car versus riding a bike is on par with watching television rather than living your own life."
