What's a Girl like you doing in a place like this?
Here and there I find a bit of gravel and woods for my commute — a nice long scenic recovery commute to heal the legs, mind and soul.
Unfortunately some construction on the gravel path through the park was under construction, so I was "forced" to take the hiking trails. Luckily it hasn't rained since last week. But uphill roots on high-psi slicks is a bit tough, I had to walk it.
I love having an old steel frame, I love my bike but I don't have to baby it. Jenny the Jamis and I can have some crazy adventures together.
Her and I might open a new chapter together. I am considering getting some permanent fenders and a cargo rack for her (the 10-20 lb. backpack is tough somedays!). Let me know if you have any recommendations. We might do some touring together in the future.
