Pain is a temporary feeling, but quitting never stops hurting.

It just dawned on me that since I am going on a ride tomorrow, that means I can go shopping at the bike store! (yes, I know I am hardly going any distance at all, but I still get to go shopping!!) I need tubes, co2 cartriges, gu.......oh, maybe some new handlebar tape. Maybe they still even have that bright pink I wanted!!! Hmm...maybe this ride will be more fun that I though. I am such a geek. Is everyone like that about getting accessories from the bike store? I love going in and scoping out all of the bikes I can't afford and then finding all of the little random stuff that I don't have to have but want anyway. And the smell.....bike shops have a certain smell...and I love it! Mmm...nothing like the smell of new bike tires in the morning!
"I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood." - Susan B. Anthony 1896
