My first ride on the bike was a shopping trip.
To get to Ikea and back with the shelves I needed to take the bus. Earlier today I rode my bike for the first time this year. I rode with my big knapsack and it did not hold all the groceries. I needed to balance two grocery bags on my handle bars. I locked up my bike outside of each store. I bought bagels first, then some cookie sheets at Canadian Tire. I then made it to the big grocery store and bought the list of items my wife wanted. The bike is working fine and needed minimal tuning up this year. I used my GPS on the bike and it was fun to watch my travels on a little map on the small LCD screen. I could also see my speed as I tracked myself with satellite.
