After my previous hiatus, I wanted to let everyone know what I’ve been up to the past few days before I stayed out of touch for too long. This past Tuesday, I purchased a used bicycle from Bikes not Bombs in Jamaica Plain and have been enjoying the great weather we’ve been having here in Boston and biking around town. I’ll post an in-depth review of both the bike and the bike shop but for now here’s a picture of my new wheels:
Pretty sweet ride, eh?
I’ll post more (and better quality, non-iPhone) pictures soon but for now I’m off. A heads up, don’t expect a post tomorrow (though you might be surprised) as it’s supposed to be 70+ degrees here!

I’d get a road bike if I didn’t have to drive for my job. I should probably get one anyway but rural Florida isn’t really the best place to be riding a bike around in July/August. It takes about 12 seconds to start sweating once you’ve stepped out of the air conditioning. No lie.
One of the benefits of being unemployed is not having get to work! I believe you about the sweaty conditions of Florida. My freshman year at college our lacrosse team went to Tampa, Orlanda, Gainesville, and Tallahasse to play a few games and it was hot then, yet alone July/August, especially with that humidity.
Still, I’d recommend a road bike for the cooler months and for short trips, they are a ton of fun and you can get going at a nice cruising speed and not expend too much energy.
