For the past six years (with a few years off due to some law school related nonsense), I have participated in the Minnesota MS 150, which is a two-day, 150-mile bike ride from Duluth to Minneapolis. It sounds terrible, I know, but it is a fun, well-organized ride through beautiful Minnesota with awesome people. And biking 150 miles is really not as difficult as it sounds.
But to be honest, I have had a few bad rides, and there have been times when I have absolutely hated it. Most of my misery came from the fact that I was riding a heavy bike that was unsuited for such a long distance. But not this year.
Because last night, I bought this beauty:
A pretty blue Giant Avail. It is light and fast and smooth and I am in LOVE.
Now Minnesota just needs to warm up a little more, because I can't WAIT to get out on the road.
If you would like to make a donation to my MS 150 ride, you can do so here. And then I will love you forever.
