Well I finally did something I have not done since October, I rode my bike! We have been having lovely 70 degree weather in Seattle lately and I got to stop wearing the defibrillator vest in February so I thought it was about time to pedal again.
I did not go far, just up to my local bakery and back so about a 2 km round trip, but it was nice to be in the sun pedaling again.
And it was rewarding to; support my local business, get out and enjoy the sunshine and have some delicious treats when I got back home.
Due to a number of factors, health, unemployment, potential move etc. I have been reducing the bike fleet and am down to just 3 bikes; the handsome devil, Crest GT and the Motobecane but I have the MotoGT on CL as I just don't ride it enough. I do have it at a good price so if someone does buy it I won't be giving it away. Now that the sun is shining again we'll see if I get any takers.
I did recently line up a job so I don't have that hanging over my head currently but I do think I may move in the next year or so and obviously not having to lug multiple bikes along will make that easier. Passing along the mountain bikes wasn't so bad but I was sorry to see the Specialized Allez go, although the kid who bought it seemed very pleased and I am glad it will get ridden and enjoyed.
One of my goals for this year to is to wipe out my debts, which will be easier now that I am employed lol. To that end I will probably stay away from bike projects for now as they seem to soak up money more that return it. I do hope, however, that I may ride more this year as I rebuild my health.
