What happened to the bike?

Remember when I went on and on (and ON) about my bike and how much I loved it and how awesome it was to ride it to the park every day and you really wished I would shut up about the stupid bike already? Remember when I suddenly stopped talking it it and you wondered where in the heck all my bike enthusiasm suddenly went?

It didn't really go anywhere, I was forced to quit riding it because of the smoke in the air. There are forest fires all over the place right now and there has been a blanket of smoke in the air for weeks. I thought it would be gone by now, but nope. Still there. They keep telling people with asthma to stay indoors as much as possible and that means me. I haven't been outside all that much lately.

I did buy the bike trainer from my friend and I will get that all hooked up and continue riding in the house this winter. I just need to get the bike computer hooked up to the back wheel instead of the front one because only the back wheel spins on the trainer and I just haven't gotten around to it yet and I can't bear to ride without my beloved bike computer telling me how good (or not so good) I'm doing.

Plus the treadmill is totally working for me right now. Which still shocks me because I was a lifelong treadmill hater and vowed never to change, lol. I still can't believe I like the treadmill, but I do. I think eventually I'll get sick of it and when I do my trusty bike will be there waiting.

And that's what happened to the bike. :)
