I Bought a Bike!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Yesterday, with over 100 degree weather, I decided I'd give into this crazy notion I've had the past few weeks and buy a bike! It is purple and tan with 24" wheels (I think it's technically a girls' bike) to fit my 5' 2" height. It even has a basket in front, but it's best feature is the "big girl" seat as my son likes to call it. I took my first ride at 6 a.m. this morning and apart from the handlebars being loose (which my husband said he will fix today) I think I'm going to really enjoy it. Here's to another way to get moving!

    Call it what you will, but I bet that "Big Girl Seat" is far more comfy than those little skinny ones bikes usually come with! I've been toying with the notion of getting a bike, but I'm very un-mechanical and I worry that the darn thing will get a flat when I'm too far away from home to walk back. I don't think AAA comes for bike tires!
