You remember my new bike, right? I’ve started calling her Betty and she and I have been having a bit of fun together. I haven’t gone on any more long rides but I’ve ridden around town for errands a few times and that was my intention when I bought the bike.
I’ve ridden to the post office twice, once to mail the MS Prize socks and once to mail the dish rag I knit for Dish Rag Tag.
I’ve ridden to get a pedicure.
And I’ve ridden to Town Hall twice, once to pay our property taxes and once to pay our water bill.
I’ve been too chicken to try riding to CVS but it’s on my list and I’m sure I’ll just do it one of these days.
My point in this post (other than just coming up with something to say because I really don’t have anything to say) is that it’s fun to ride! I really do feel like a kid again with this bike and I get compliments on her everywhere I go.
There is one hill that I face when going “downtown” to the PO or nail salon but I think it’s gotten a bit easier to climb each time. Either that or I’m just getting used to it because that first time was a killer.
I’m looking forward to riding more as the weather cools down and I know it will be heartbreaking to put her away when the ice and snow arrives. Just another reason to hate winter. Heh.
