Bryn has been partnerless in his morning bike rides for some time now. Well since about when google went public and Jeremy moved to England. Because of this, he hasn't gotten a chance to go biking much. It's always hard to motivate yourself when no one else is counting on you to show up. And since I've been doing a lot of stationary bike at the gym, the idea came to me that I should start riding out of doors.
Of course this idea occurred to me several months ago, and I'm a lazy, lazy man. But today I put aside some of that laziness and talked Bryn into coming bike shopping with me. I really didn't know what I was looking for, or how to shop for a road bike. And perhaps Bryn talked me into a slightly higher end model than I had originally intended for my first real road bike. But it's really cool, and I'm looking forward to taking it on some monster hills in the area in the coming months. Especially as summer starts to hit the valley.
