Bought a bike today.. my first one since i was like 15.. Schwinn Perlude 700C Touring/Road Bike 28".. It was only 169.99 from target, on sale from 199.99 and looked pretty good.. I've always wanted a 'skinny wheel' bike. I do no cardio because i hate treadmills and my ankles do not like it when I run, so I figured this would be a good way to get more active (outside of the gym) and help me shed a few pounds. I decided to go with my friend and girlfriend on a ride today.. there's a pretty sick paved trail that runs for a long way through orlando, away from the streets/traffic, etc.. we did the whole thing and looked it up online, turns out it was 17 miles round trip.. I think I overdid it for my first time riding My ass is killing me (even though I bought a gel seat cover thing), but it was fun as shit.
