Shopping on a bike is Fun!

In the interest of getting in better physical condition, i have decided to see if i can use my bike more than my truck... so this is the photo of what the bike looked like when i got back from a shopping trip this past friday... it was fun... went to the bank and two fabric stores here in Asheville & home to CURVE... and check one of our new bike racks.. thanks to David Earl Tomlinson & his welding skills & Luke Perry, the architect, for his design consulting...
