It's been a hard week of spending bike money, and this blog doesn't even tell the whole story. If anyone deserves a beer, it would be me. I couldn't afford to wait for someone else to recognize this fact, let alone have the ambition to act on their sense of compassion. That could have been a very long wait, as in hundreds of years, and I'm generally not that patient. And that, therefore, is why I took matters into my own hands.
