Anyone up for a 10 mile ride?

Want to take a 10 mile ride?

How about  riding to the local Walmart?

Just a good slow relaxing ride, not too fast, not to strenuous.

Bike is ready for the ride with backpack strapped around top post.

Mileage at the beginning of the ride is 1484.6

I pulled a muscle in my leg yesterday morning and had a killer charlie-horse

about 1000 foot shy of Walmart today… but continued on my way.

Looked at a reduced price (as-is) bike on the floor while I was there.

This bike must have been returned simply because someone didn’t like it…

It’s marked down to $ 83.85 but it’s regular price is only $ 119.97…

so surely it isn’t damaged goods being sold at ripoff prices?

Return label states that it was purchased on August 8th

and returned on October 8th for the reason “change mind”

(Wonder how many miles were put on it over those 2 months???)

I think I’ll wait for it to be marked down A LOT more

before I even consider taking my chances with an

AS-IS Walmart “returned” junker!

I mean… WHAT IF THIS GUY RETURNED IT?

I can certainly see him returning it for the reason “change mind”…

Hey! There’s a GOOD BIKE over in Lawn & Garden!

After picking up a few things I’m ready for the ride back.

I think that I killed a whole hour inside of Walmart,

but only managed to bring 3 items home with me.

Oh Well…

The bike at the end of the trip…

You can see that I removed the backpack to carry a few things in.

Ending mileage 1494.7

Come to find out Google’s 31 minute ride is my 45 minute ride

getting there — that is.¬† 31 minutes is accurate coming back.

(I could have probably made it there in 37 minutes but I detoured a little)

Again… Just a nice relaxing ride.
