What Can Brown Do For You?


Bret was away this weekend, and he needed someone to feed his cat Friday through today. I got volunteered. Good deal. Yesterday, I convinced Travis to ride (bicycles) with me over to Bret's and back. I had no idea how far it was, but figured if I could get there, I could rest, and then head back when I felt better. Well, it turns out it was a mere 2.5 miles there, and I felt pretty good. I came back and was feeling mostly ok. Total trip, 5.6 miles (don't ask). I went on another ride today (6 1/2 miles) in about 30 minutes. I felt really good, a little saddle soar, but good overall.

I have decided though, that I am in need of a new bike, as mine is 13 years old, and wasn't really well kept. I thought about getting a hybrid bike. Why Hybrid? Well, if I got a hybrid, I could ride in the streets, and on bike trails, which would be good. I then realized though, that it's pretty silly to do that, as I can get new hybrid tires for my current bike, for about $40, and have a better bike for bike trail riding.

So, where does that leave me? I think I'm going to get a new road bike, so that I can do long distance rides, and at a good speed. That would also allow me to get a trainer, and use it in the winter, which would be really good. Unfortunately, a road bike costs a little more (10%) than a similar hybrid bike, but I think that is the better option... though I could still change my mind. And If I do figure out what kind, I need to figure out what brand, and model. So many decisions.
