For the purposes that I use my bike, my mountain bike just wasn't cutting it. I had my goal of riding to school 10 times. I have done the ten and probably 20 more. I plan on adding even more to that as this school year winds down. My mountain bike wasn't super practical for running errands around town. Last summer I would hook up the trailer to the bike and pull the girls around town to run errands. They loved it, but it was making me work a lot harder than I needed to. This bike should make things easier for me.
Next week looks like perfect bike riding weather. I can't wait!
