I started back at UC Santa Cruz on January 10th and if any of you have been there, you know that the campus is HUGE! I was having to take the bus to and from class to class in order to be only a minute late rather than the 15 minutes late I would be if I walked. After about a week of this frustration, I thought to myself, hey, why don’t I bring my bike and ride from class to class? So that’s what I did. I live at home and drive down there twice a week and I bring my Trek 7.5FX WSD with me. It’s great! I’m able to ride around the most beautiful campus in the world and I get to classes on time or earlier! My 7.5FX is a great ride, super comfortable, fast, and stable, even with a back pack or pannier bag on the back. I get out of class, hop on my bike and take in the redwoods while I ride, and it smells much better than the bus!
