I took her in to the shop this past Tuesday to beat the rush and it was ready to pick up after work next day! It need some new brake pads, cable, etc. I know the weather is much better then it has been as I have biked every day to work this week, with both bikes.
While I was out riding today, I stopped at a nearby mall to mail another Postcrossing card to California, and then I made an origami Swan. I will have to clean the bike up as it's quite dirty after the ride. My beater bike was developing rust on chain so I cleaned that the other day with degreaser. I am a bit worried that rust will form on Rocky Mtn. bike because of the crap on the road, but at least I know that it will come off easily. I got to get some fenders for the beater bike tomorrow, as it's better riding over the black ice early in the morning right now.

|I received this one on Wednesday.|
Speaking of postcrossing, after giving up hope this week, I received 3! Two on Wednesday were from the Netherlands and Australia. And yesterday, I received one from Russia, which took 44 days to get here. They are not bike themed, but that is ok. I have 9 cards now and they hang on my Postcrossing Wall.
