I took my old mountain bike into the shop last week to have the fork serviced, and I picked it up yesterday. I thought that I might sell the new bike, but after weighing both of them, and seeing that the new one is three pounds lighter than the old one, I'm probably going to keep it.

School started this week, and I have a class at the Montoya campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Parking is a problem, so I decided to try and ride my bike to class. I found a backpack large enough to hold my books, wrapped my chain around my seat tube, and headed down the hill. It only took 20 minutes to get there, and I didn't even work up a sweat.

After class, I decided to take the long way home, and rode up Bear Canyon to the Foothills Trails. I rode to my favorite break spot, and enjoyed some time soaking up the sun. I haven't done that in quite a while.

Breaktime finally ended, and I rode back to the house.

It was a beautiful day, with temps in the 80s.
