The car has developed a problem. The back-left wheel is turned whether i want it to be or not, and it makes funny bumpy noises when i drive. There's also a metal thingy hanging down from around the wheel on the axle. Perhaps this has something to do with the acceleration problems. Add to this that i have not been employed for a couple years, and i cannot really afford to fix the car, no matter what the problem is. So, i borrowed my brother's bicycle, and found an old form of transportation.
Riding the bike is hard work. I'm out of shape, and even a few minutes of riding make me sweat profusely and hasten my breath. That ought to get better with practice, and i'd love to start riding long distances. Though, i seem to peddle in spurts, which is problematic. And then there's the seat problem, it's downright painful, so i stand most of the time, or sit over to one side. Perhaps a gel seat is in order.
Bike helmets seem to be a "Good Thing"(tm) and it is also in style. Though, finding one that fits might take some work. I've looked in the past, and found very tight fits that were uncomfortable.
This ought to help me save on gas too, and then there's the dream of canceling the car insurance.
I'm just happy this happened in the summer.
