I got a bicycle. #twowheelsgood Well i think it will be good. Right now my backside would disagree. I rode about 5 miles on my new bike yesterday. Half of it into a 30mph head wind and then half of it with that as a tailwind.

Thanks to a friend who sent me a friends and family discount coupon for Dick's sporting goods I got 25% off the nicest bike they carry and then stacked it with 10% off and double points by opening a store credit card. Ended up saving well over $250 on the bike and equipment. I tried running this winter, but some chronic knee pain meant I needed to find a different way to get fit. Hopefully this works out, but after that short ride yesterday I'm quite sore. I'll be riding the bike down to the local bike shop to see if I can get it properly fitted to me sometime this week.

Any tips from any other riders out there?
