|One of the bikes I built on Saturday|
A few weeks ago, the guys at Brick City Bicycles here in Ocala asked me if I wanted to come in a couple of hours a week and learn how to build, fix, and maintain bikes. My dad said it was like an apprenticeship. It sounded to me like a job, with pay. Actually, I was offered store credit, but to me, it's pretty much the same thing. Of course, I said, "Sign me up!!"

Today, I got to put my new skills to work on my own bike. My dad and I went for a training ride and my brakes weren't working right. I was able to fix them on the trail, which is something I wouldn't have known how to do if not for Scott and Thomas.

|Isn't it awesome? I have my eye on this one.|
I think this is about the best job ever, and I am one lucky kid!!
