Lifestyle Choice

H. G. Wells:

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."

I purchased a bike for commuting to the new Verdi office. (that may be a post for another day) I don't do this to save the environment or save money on gas, I do this for two reasons; 
I now have real reasons to ride a bike every day of the week and secondly I am looking forward to the challenge. You all know that I get bored easily so the effort involved in planning out the day, battling the elements and my own laziness seems like a worthy effort.

She may look flashy but I will tell you that I spent a whopping $418 on this steel miracle of Chinese ingenuity.  How they can produce and sell this bike for that dollar figure may be whats wrong with American commerce.

I love the soft, solar flares in the picture. It's like an image from a dream...

is it just the lighting or are you riding a pink bike?

Kristin said...'s the 'in' color scheme in... china?

and I'm still waiting for the Grand Canyon post... you know, so I know what really happened.

Sorry all, that is the soft pink hue reflecting off the crimson sandstone that surrounds our lovely little burg. The bike is actually white.

I really wish that it was pink.

Every commuter bike should have white-wall tires.
