First things first. You’re going to need a bike, and one on the cheap if I’m guessing right. You’re in luck! UA has a surplus auction every 2 weeks. Everything they sale, including the bikes, are used. The bikes belonged to students that just left them on campus after they left so be on the lookout for broken gears, seats and brakes. Usually there are a TON of bikes in their sale after graduation so if you’re looking during that part of the year you’ll probably find one you like. Anyhow try it out. Here’s the link, click on “photo gallery” to see what they’re selling during that particular auction. Here’s the catch: you don’t know what anyone else is bidding. Usually you can get a decent bike for $20. You’ll also need to go to their warehouse to bid, but you can also check out your potential bike in person while you’re there. They like for you to come between 2-5pm Monday-Friday. Their address is 1115 14th St. Tuscaloosa, AL.
