YEAH, DO IT! I feel like the window of what I consider to be "nice weather" is very narrow because I hate the sun and I hate the heat, but there are difficulties that come with riding in wet and cold weather too, haha. This week has been really great though because it's been overcast and low-60's and that's as good as it gets. :O

I mean, I started biking two years ago after literally not riding a bike since I was a kid and the struggle was real, but yo, we live in such a lovely place to bike!

GOSH I KNOW BUT I also like not keeling over in the road like a sad, dead possum. I super miss it a lot, though. MAYBE I will find a cheap bike on Craigslist...!

You can do ittttt. Even if it's just like. A mile. Or whatever. You can do it!! But yaaa, there are lots of pretty nice bikes on CL. :o The mountain bike I got initially I scored for like $90 and it came with a back rack, front fender, and taillight. :O

A bike is a bike! Mine is pretty old but I'm a bit rough with it when I commute.

I used to use Map My Ride but APPARENTLY the app + my phone don't agree anymore so I got one of those little manual tracker things lololol.

Yeah!! Bike is a bike!

My mountain bike (pic, pic) is like 20 years old?? Bought it super used, but it's worked out all right. Had two flats within two months of having it, but I chalk it up to my not knowing what I was doing, lol.

My road bike (pic, pic, pic) is much nicer, hahaha. 8D I've been putting off getting a cyclometer because I probably don't need a distracting screen full of delicious stats when I ride...
it was me. i broke it.

Aaa what a pretty bike! I'm glad you were able to repair her after the accident (and that you're okay too!?). x_x Sucks to be in a bike-unfriendly place though. :/

lol yeah it was the bike that got smushed. i was okay. i was in the crosswalk and a guy was at the stop sign. then he made a right turn while looking left.. right into me. turned the front of my bike into a pretzel. i had him pay to repair my bike at a shop nearby. he seemed pretty young and freaked out. i was mostly in shock until later. like oh wow, a car just crushed my bike.

speaking of flat tires, mine kept going flat from general use so i bought these extra badass inner tubes and they lasted. no more flat tires! had those installed at the bike shop. i miss florida. );

I've had so many cars almost hit me because they're turning right without looking right................. :| A lot of the roads here have the bike lane against the sidewalk and the car's right turn to the left of it, and a big NO RIGHT TURN EXCEPT ON LIGHT sign and a specific right turning light, because bikes in the bike lane will go straight on green and cars in the right turn lane can't turn if they're there. You can spot the tourists as the ones who turn right anyway. 8D

The tubes on my road bike must be a huge step up from those on my mountain bike because I've put more than twice the miles on it without an issue now and I've ridden over all kinds of crap. :O

It surprised me to discover that there's actually a huge biking community where I used to live (Houston) because the place doesn't seem very bike friendly to me at all? Maybe you can find some place in your area that at least has some nice trails? :c
