You know those surrey bikes? The ones with the canopy and benches with spots for two to sit side-by-side and pedal? You know how they look really fun?

Don’t be deceived by our happy faces: we were happy to be done at this point. Damn, those things are hard work! They have no gears, crappy brakes, the seats are too high up for short people (like me) to be able to really reach the pedals comfortably, the frame is made of cast iron or something, and they need way more cushioning. Oh, and hills suck. I mean, seriously, seriously suck. We actually got off and pushed the thing up one of the short hills in our way on the course. Don’t need to do that again.
