I mentioned a few days ago that today was the national bike to work day. I met up with a few coworkers and road down... I'll do a write-up on the whole event once I get some pictures loaded up.
But in the meantime.... they had a drawing for a Trek 3500 Hard Tail mountain bike and I won! A huge thanks to Bike Doctor of Annapolis who are giving me the bike and the Baltimore Metropolitan Council for putting on the event!
Unfortunately I won't be able to get fitted and pick the bike up today since, well, I don't think I can ride two bikes home. But, yay, I am so freaking excited. I already scheduled a day out to Patapsco!
Edit: So I biked over to the store on my lunch break. They are offering me store credit equal to the cost of the 3500, which means I can get the bike I have had my eyes on for a long time now, the Cannondale F9! which is about 5 pounds lighter and has better components. I'll only have to pay the difference which is about $100.
