aaronbenedict's trip to Pittsburgh, Day 3

Tuesday day was spent riding The "Jail Trail" and The South Side Trail with aaronbenedict.

A bit of backstory: I used to be quite the little cyclist, but have done remarkably little riding since my bike accident back in 1995. unixd0rk was an avid cyclist, but even when I was dating him, he only got me on a bicycle once. Until this past Tuesday, it was the one and only time I'd been on a bicycle since my accident.

Suffice it to say, going on a five mile bicycle ride with aaronbenedict was kind of a big deal for me.

Incidentally, those of you who've known me since college might recognize my bike. Yes, I still have Mathilde. We briefly considered renting a different bike for me, but, truly, Mathilde is the only bicycle for me.

Now then:

I think he looks yummy in bicycle shorts. It was their maiden voyage. :)

P.S. peatasaurus: Yes they do rent helmets!

Holy hell do I look fat
