Have you read THE MEMORY OF RUNNING yet? You should because it's good. A man, feeling his life closing in on hime, starts to ride a bike across the USA. I really loved it. I love weird reads though and this one was somewhat strange.
On another note...I keep thinking about getting a mountain bike now. I think I could ride more without worrying about getting a flat. But...maybe not. The roads here suck and especially the shoulders though...it's a toss up. What does everyone think? Do you like to ride Mountain bikes? Would it be a good way to ride across Nebraska? Should I stick to Terry? Help me out here.
