Rode the fixed gear from the house to the bash downtown to the bike path in Smith park. Loads of fun!

Rode my Langster Moscow yesterday for the first time

So yesterday was the first day I rode a fixed gear bike, and it was a blast. I wasn't prepared to ride, so I was wearing gym shorts, no sunglasses, but I did have a helmet on. I took the path from Trenton down to the other end of the Middletown bike path. I think it's about 6 miles each way, but I'm not sure if that counts the Smith Park stuff.

I've wanted a fixed gear bike for a while now, because I think it will help improve my fitness. I was not disappointed by the bike ride although I do wish I had worn sunglasses at least, because the bugs were out in force yesterday afternoon/early evening. I kept feeling them hit my legs, arms, face, and head - THROUGH THE VENTS on my helmet.

I was curious to know how fast I was going at points; I think I was going at a pretty good rate. Part of the reason I got the bike was so I could ride with Mark - I figure the fixed gear will slow me down a bit. :)

Edisto Island trip coming up...

Am looking forward to a visit later this summer to a beach house we rented!
