I received my City Grounds prize pack in the mail today. City Grounds is a fixed gear riders dream website and if you haven’t been there to check it out, I suggest you get on it. They have the best prices, the best gear and a huge selection of bikes to purchase. If you are in the market for a bike, need to upgrade components or just want some new accessories, Look no further. Check out their Facebook page for Friday giveaways so you have a chance to win prize packs similar to what I just won.

I have been trying to get familiar with Adobe Photoshop in my spare time and It has been a fun experience. Teaching yourself how to work anything is very gratifying and I find myself finally having a passion for learning. If you didn’t notice, I love my bike.
It is nice and warm out today so I broke out the Jorts and tank top for my bike ride to work. The wind was a little heavy so it wasn’t that enjoyable but I must say that I am looking forward to this summer and riding my bike around.
