i want an electric bike

Andy wanted me to drop off his dvd rental for him (he's in Chicago for Annoyance Intensive training). After arguing and complaining about it (he responded by saying he'll miss me too), I ended up driving over to Mopac/Town Lake, and then biked to the store, in the heat. Took a break at Bouldin Creek coffeeshop, and then biked back to my car. I biked about 6.4 miles... the furthest I've ever gone :) Yay me!

Biking is easy:
1. when it's flat
2. when there's a nice breeze and shade
3. in the town lake trail where i'm the fastest vehicle and can self-importantly yell: "left!" while playing obstacle course with pedestrians and cyclists and dogs.

Biking is hard:
1. in the hill country parts of Austin
2. when there are cars on the roads.
3. when that big ball hot thing in the sky is over-enthusiastic.

Feel tired now, but awesome. Intense exercise is such a euphoria.

I totally saw you biking while Kaci and I were on the way to Hoover's Blanket rehearsal. I was only 50% it was you, but this confirms it.
