In my prior blog I talked about some cures for late summer blues and how to prevent burnout. Well, I took my own advice and went out and bought a Mountain Bike the other day. And, to be honest with you..I'm having a blast. Since buying my Mountain Bike, I've been to Pennypack Park, Wissahickon Park and Blue Marsh Lake. I'm actually looking forward to when I can go out and ride it again. In fact, I think I'm going to go to Mercer County Park tomorrow. The best thing about riding a Mountain Bike is that it's giving me a GREAT workout..and teaching me handling skills and balance..which can only benefit me on my road bike. If you don't have a Mtn. bike, and you're burning out of the road bike scene, you might want to consider buying one. Now is a good time to buy one at your LBS since they'll be stocking up on 2010s soon...and there are great deals to be had.
BTW, I bought a 2009 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er that I got a great deal on from my friends at High Road Cycles in Doylestown, PA
