Thursday, August 28, 2014
As I said last year, on the last Thursday of August, my only regret is not doing it sooner.
It's a great way to burn off a few calories and tone the legs. Snedeker warned me of another benefit. My rides aren't nearly as long as his, but Joe said I'll enjoy the solitude, and I really do. When you're out there, it's just you, the bike and the road. The situation is elevated a bit in my case because I ride before the sun comes up. Other than the occasional drunk driver and stray cat, I generally have my small town streets to myself, and it's a nice feeling.
If you've been kicking around getting a bike, do it. You can probably find some end of season deals. Buy it from a store where the employees know what they're talking about. You might pay a bit more in the beginning, but it's worth it in the long run.
See you on the streets.
