We're a biking team

This past Saturday, Jacqui got herself a new bike. She wrote about our trip to the Village Cycle Shop in Old Town and her new bike, a Gary Fisher Wingra.

While there, I picked up a wireless bike computer, because, well, I’ve wanted one for a while and VCS was having a Spring super sale.

When I got it home, it was missing a piece. I got the piece replaced today after work and got it all hooked up.

Only problem? The damn thing doesn’t work! I’ve tried aligning the magnet in a billion different ways, moving the sensor up and down the fork, everything. The stupid thing is busted. Now I’m going to have to stop by again and get a new one.

The coolest thing about the both of us having bike now, is that we can run errands together and get a workout at the same time. After I failed to install this computer, we took a ride to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to grab sheets for our new king bed mattress that’s arriving tomorrow.

We also went to Trader Joe’s and picked up a pound of amazing bacon for dinner. What did we make? Bacon wrapped shrip and eggplant salad.

The shimp is pretty straight forward, but the eggplant was sliced, covered in olive oil, grilled, and mixed with balsamic vinegar, pine nuts, goat cheese and mixed together into a pseudo-mush. It was delicious!
