Ryan recently found a great used mountain bike for me on Craigslist. The main reason I wanted a mountain bike is for riding to the grocery store. I needed something sturdy that I could put a basket and heavy groceries on. This bike is perfect. We only live 3/4 mi away from three grocery stores so I really should ride or walk all the time (even though I don't). I suppose I probably don't really save much on gas by not driving, and it's not like biking 1.5 mi on flat pavement is much exercise, but I do look pretty cool with this basket on my bike.
