I'm super excited. My bike got stolen last year and I never replaced it. I figured I could become one of those awesome folks for a couple weeks while I buy a new car instead of spending 4X as much renting a car (my insurance from my accident only gets me a discount on a rental).

Sidenote, it's hot/humid as FUCK here and so I hope you realize biking 7 miles to work is a big deal. CONGRATULATE ME!*

My old bike was a teenaged boy's mountain bike that had been severely abused, and it made even the easiest trip into some sort of full-blown workout, so going somewhere on it took forever and made me insanely sweaty.

*Just kidding, I'll be fine. Gotta keep hydrated.
