Second, my past week.
This past week, I (with help from parents) purchased the bike, but couldn't ride until yesterday, Kennett had our homecoming week, and I met someone new.
The bike, a Scott Scale 70, rides well, and can take a beating. Only beat myself up a little bit on some overgrown single-track, but otherwise the ride went well. It was the first decent ride I've taken in almost two years, and I am hoping to get a camera mount to be able to film.
