Enjoying Life on Two Wheels

My old, faithful, old, slightly rusty (did I mention old?) bike.
You know that feeling you get when you're coasting down a hill, the wind whipping your hair into crazy banners behind you, as you speed along faster than you could ever manage to get by just pedaling?

Yeeeaaaahhh, that's the one.  I love that feeling!

Recently James got a new bike, and I dragged out my old one from college.  We've been trying to ride for a least a little bit every day, in an attempt to get more exercise than just walking from the car into work and back out again.  Getting exercise outdoors in the face-melting heat that is the special hell purgatory of a Texas summer can be daunting, especially for people like me, who have lost all of their ability to withstand the heat after years of near-constant exposure to air conditioning.
