Fat Kid on a Bike day #7 4-7-11

  My bike is still in Nordeast. This Magna is so small. But I’m gonna stick with it. I am in Minnetonka till Sunday. Next week I am going to try to make more of an effort. I had a lot going on this week, but people who give up their cars have a lot going on as well and they do just fine. My eating has been really bad as well this week. I have been slacking in a lot of areas of life this week. To morrow is Friday and I am going to do some yoga and hang with some great friends, maybe this will center me a little more. This time I headed into the big town of Glen Lake. Glen Lake is a small community located in Minnetonka that was a train station on the rail line that headed to Excelsior at one time. Now it is a little town with all of the finest amenities, aside from a bike shop. In January Tonka Cycle closed, they were there ever since I can remember. I took my bike there all the time when I was a kid. They were always great to us kids. This brings me to another point, please support you small, local bike shop. Chain shops have their purpose, but small shops are where it’s at. I like to be a person rather then a statistic. Small shops seem to work for your business and try harder to keep it. I may be a little bias, because of me formally having a part in a small bike shop. But my ride was great until the hills of Woodhill Road. Ever try to do huge hills on a little bike. Do I here a joke? Fat guy on a little bike….. Well my ride went well and I think I did like seven miles or so. I am feeling better but tomorrow I am getting my bike! Happy riding
