Alright, so I have been on a slight hiatus (sp) for a while. Almost a month. In my defense, I have not had anything to write about. Now I do. I've seen the 2-mile challenge from Cliff Bar in quite a few different places. Bicycling magazine, on the web in various locations, among others. Today, I accepted it. I figured out that I can go almost anywhere I need to go in two miles or less.
My main issue at the moment with accepting the 2-mile challenge is that I have no way of carrying anything on my bike. Neither of my bikes have racks, trailers or any useful items. I have a frame of an older hardtail that I always wanted to turn into a singlespeed and I was going to load it up and make it a commuter/do-it-all type bike. However, I have not had the cash or the time to put it together. I can always use a backpack if I need to carry a small amount of stuff, which should be fine.
Now that I'm done complaining, I'm up for the challenge. I can do it. It's not that hard and I love riding bikes. I will try and post updates here often, weekly often. So here are the updates:
