Happy summer ya'll. I'm back up in the Northeast for the rest of the season and I'm so glad to be. It's been heavenly being back in the coast to reconnect with friends and good old country bike riding. Since moving out of Brooklyn, I've been without my own two wheels to call my own. Usually I go for a city bike, but being that I'm not in a city, I took to a hybrid that I could use on the long road being that I love touring and long distance riding. New England is perfect for those long rides, so a bike to endure the country roads is much appreciated in these parts.
