The Bikes

Aha! I finally have gotten around to taking pictures of my bikes. I am definitely a huge fan of the new Giant Bike (on the bottom). It rides so nice! The bike on top is my older carbon bike, which I still ride occasionally but for some strange reason is not as smooth.

Anyway I thought I would also take some time to post one of my favorite post ride meals/snacks...yes smoothies! My favorite are smoothies of the strawberry type. Here are a list of some good smoothie recipes:

The goal this next week is to get out at least twice (Tuesday and Thursday) and enjoy the Athens spring weather!

The new bike finally came in this past weekend! I have put most of it together, but I am still working on some of it. Since the bike had a new chain, I have been trying to get the grease off (it attracts a lot of dirt), but I still need to put it back on. I should be riding it tomorrow for a ~20 mile ride. I'll post some pictures soon.

I'm also thinking of having a couple of themes. For instance I'd like to start a list of things that I like to eat right after a ride or talk about movies that are about cross country trips. If anyone has any other ideas let me know!

The Start

So I finally ordered my bike and it's being assembled right now! There are still some things that I need to do which consists of writing some Thank You cards, sending out more letters, and training. I was able to get out this past weekend and ride around 180 miles on my current bike so I am happy about that. I am also trying to figure out how to post my rides online so anyone can view them. Also I am new to all of this blogging stuff so its going to be a learning experience!
