So I found one of these on eBay for under $200. I mean I don't know, maybe I got ripped off, but bikes seem to hold their value a lot more than cars, since it's easier to keep them in good condition. It's leaving AZ right now and I'm all excited. Gotta get a helmet I guess. Other than that I'm not going to go overboard in gear - my furthest ride will be my work commute at 5 miles or so.

(I was loaned one for a Saturday trek and have been obsessed since. Well, I was considering getting a skateboard, but I think this will be a safer choice. There's a reason "like riding a bike" is a metaphor for so many things.)

Reg and I are going camping with friends this weekend, then taking a few days to do an actual backpack (not exactly sure where yet, but probably around Leavenworth). I'm hoping the bike arrives before then, or is there when we get back. That would be sweet.

Hope you enjoy it. Riding like a punk in traffic is one of my greatest joys.

I'm going out of my way to not be killed by the 2-ton machines, actually.

That seems preferable certainly.
