So this morning I had to take my motorcycle in for 8k mile service. So I came up with this brilliant plan.
After I dropped the motorbike off I walked a few blocks to Target. I looked for the cheapest bicycle that I could actually ride. I found a red Magna mountain bike for $53.77+tax. Sweet. I've spent more on lunch. I grabbed that and, since it's a $60 bike I decided to also get a tire pump, portable multi-tool, and tube repair kit.
I set up the bike in the parking lot and rode to work. The bike performed as one might expect. But it got me there. What I didn't expect was when I got to work I felt like I was going to pass out and throw up at the same time.
Picture me, red and sweaty, walking to my cubicle and immediately lying down on the floor.
I caused unnecessary alarm.
