More Biking

There was lots of biking today. I had to go to the alcohol counseling appointment today, so I biked there. It's 7 miles from my house to the office where that was. After finishing the appointment, I biked to the bellevue transit center and caught a bus up to kirkland, where my local homebrew store is located. All this talk of not drinking has really gotten me wanting to brew a new batch. Hopefully, the beer will be ready by the time I'm allowed to drink again.

From there, I decided to bike home. I went down into Redmond and rode the Sammammish River Trail for a little bit and then took Westlake Sammammish Parkway the rest of the way. Unfortunately, right around when I passed the 12 mile mark, my back tire caught a nail. The resulting flat made me walk home the rest of the way.

When I got home, my mom told me about how she saw a sale on some bike at Target. The bike was on sale for $40. My dad and I went over to check it out and sure enough, it was there. It's not that great of a bike, but for $40, it seems like a nice starting point. I didn't pay $400 like this guy and apparently you can mod the bike to be a fixed-gear. The bike needs some serious mods. The handlebars drop down way too low and the breaks are in a awkward place. It will take some biking to get used to. Meanwhile, I've got a flat to fix on the other bike.
