I ordered a Trek 3500 series mountain bike before Thanksgiving from the local shop, and today I received word that the good people had finished assembling it. I decided to walk to the shop, a distance of around three miles, and ride back home rather than deal with the car.
I had noticed when I placed my order that the shop gives a folder with each bike purchased, containing the manual, receipt, coupons, and information about the shop, among other things.
I forgot about this tidbit, so juggling the folder and learning the quirks of how this bike handles at the same time made things interesting, as I nearly fell off once when the sidewalk had this crazy maze of ramps that came without warning- I’ll provide a picture in the next post.
I left for the bike shop at noon, arrived at about quarter of one, and spent until three riding around the island. There’s a straight-shot road that led me to some beach areas and a surprisingly developed area, with high-rise hotels. I was under the impression that where I am was like Nantucket, or the lower Cape. I’ll have pictures on the way.
More random information you, dear reader, did not ask for but are getting anyway: films watched since my relocation!
