I got a mountain bike when I lived up in Northern California, but now that I’m back in the city, it’s maybe not the most well-suited to the kind of biking I’m doing. I’m mostly doing grocery runs and getting around town. I do occasionally drool over the cute city bikes at REI, but I’m not ready to pull the trigger yet. Anyway, the bike I have is the best one for the job, because it’s mine, even if it is slower than a road bike might be. I’m loving being able to get around the flat, flat valley, even if there are parts where I still have to use the sidewalk. It’s imperfect, but it works.
