Impulsive Buy... Possibly

But however impulsive it may have been I am now the proud owner of a new Specialized Allez Sport Triple.

Pretty darn exciting. So I have been telling people for a long while now that I wanted to get into cycling. I guess this makes it official. Now I have to get in shape. I decided to take it for a short spin after I brought it home, and I can say that I have some serious work ahead of me. I think that once the semester is over, I will ride every day to work, but before I let it become my major mode of transport, I really need to get my lungs and heart back into working. It appears that the last year or so have really taken a toll on my fitness. Though my brain can write some pretty impressive code, and my fingers can fly over the keyboard, my legs can't quite make the bike go as fast as I would hope.

Just to throw in a quick plug for the folks at Bingham Cyclery. They were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly.

Hey Joe, Today's going to be a great one for getting out on the bike! On a related matter -- enjoying this little planet we all share -- I've just blogged about the computer recycling event tomorrow and Saturday. Would you mind also mentioning it to your readers? Here's a link to my post:

Maybe when I finally get out from under the pile of homework, I just might get to ride that bike.
