In the meantime, I got a new mountain bike last week, so I've been writing in the mornings and then heading out on the trails every afternoon.
I have to say, I'm pretty amazed by the bike. Not that it's the greatest bike in the world, but it's not half bad considering I only paid $119 for it online from Walmart. How can they sell a full-suspension mountain bike for $119? Those Chinese are amazing... Plus shipping was only .97 cents and it took just two days to arrive. Wow. So far I've been out on it about six times, which means if I spent $20 per day to rent a bike, I'd already have paid the same. Hopefully it won't fall apart on me, but so far so good.
So now it is back to my revisions for the day. Hopefully I'll have a productive morning so I can get out on the trails this afternoon with a clear conscience!
