No Time For Fun

Lots of thing going on.
The new computer system is planned to go live on May 29.
I have 12 hours of training and each shop man has to have 3 hours each, in the next 2 weeks.
The roll out is taking in the parts inventory so every thing has to be right on the nickel to make it work right. We will soon see.
Been riding the old mountain bike, it about one of the 1st ones. Its about 13 years old I'm gussesing.
I injury the arch on my right foot, I let it heal about 2 weeks and went back the hiking and I kelp re-injuring it. So about first part of April I started to ride the old bike and did not hurt my foot.
I was riding on the green way trail by the new brigde and run out to the Valley of the Rogue park.
I would turn around at the rest area. Best I could tell was that it was about 3 mile one way.
At first is was prettty slow, in first gear the hole time (only have 18 gears). I got up to 2 and 3 most of the way, avaged about 8 mph.
I moved to Catheral Hill monday and had to pick and trail that I could go part way up.
I having to push it up the last 300 to 400 feet. The plan is to be able to ride this in about 2 weeks. The ride down is about one and half miles.
The hole ride takes about 30 minutes. If I feel good by the end, I will add and small half mile loop one.
Looking at buying a new bike, 24 speed. Its a Gray Fisher 19 inch.
