I started biking out of necessity. Coming back to school was a task in itself and now I had no car to get there. Luckily when I moved to Marquette, Michigan I knew I could find a place close to campus within biking distance. I should have planned it out better - I went from casual biking to streamlining down Third Street along side cars and trucks to get to class on time. Eventually I got the hang of it and now I’m not the one resting against the wall. My thighs have never looked better.
