I arrived home after work yesterday, hot and tired. I really didn't want to do anything physical. Having eaten a Quarter Pounder with cheese and fries for lunch that day, I felt guilty and thought that I had better get off of my rear end and ride. I'm glad I did. Work has been stressful lately and riding seems to put me in a much more relaxed mood. Unfortunately I've been averaging only one ride per week. I need to resume my 5 AM rides.
Things cooled off nicely late in the afternoon.
I'm still browsing bike sites trying to figure out just what I want to buy sometime in the not too distant future. A thread in Bike Forums brought this bike to my attention, it is a KHS Green 3 speed city bike. By coincidence the bike was favorably reviewed in the latest issue of Bicycling Times magazine, although it is also being sold as the Manhattan Green. Manhattan and KHS are one and the same. It sells for around $370 and is made from simple, low-tech hi-tensile steel. I think a beat up old Brooks would be a nice addition to this bike. I could see myself riding one of these.
The Green is also comes in a woman's step thru frame.
