And then I started looking at all the pretty bikes online...
And then we went to see them in person and I test-rode a bunch...
And then I fell in love with one. They only had it in black at the store [boring], so I ordered the green and white.
I took it for a short spin and it feels amazing! What a difference to ride a bike that actually fits and works properly. :)
Let me assure you that my stance on triathlons/duathlons and my fear of riding downhill have not changed yet, but I'm looking forward to some recreational riding on a real set of wheels.
I think I still need to get a bell... but first I need a new helmet! Flower power is just not going to cut it anymore.
Tomorrow is clinic so I am looking forward to commuting to the store (hopefully without incident!), and going out for a bit of a longer ride on Friday. Time to get used to seeing the world from two wheels!
