After a season and a half riding on a cheap mountain bike then several seasons doing thousands of miles on a hybrid; it was time to reward myself with a new faster bike. Of course I looked no further than Cory the Bike Fixer where I chose a Kona Dew Drop to do the long distance duties I was about to embark on this past summer.
The ride I wanted to prepare for one June Saturday (6/20/09) was for a ride up in the Michigan UP a week later which was 75 miles. But that day I rode almost to Sheboygan (52 miles way) for a cookout and after some debate I decided I had enough gas and daylight (didn’t have lights on the bike yet) to go back yet that day and force me into a century. I did it.
This was the Kona’s inaugural trip too. What a way to break in a bike. 🙂
