Get a bike!
Wednesday, June 02, 2010
Wow, what a feeling! I rode my new bike to work today for the first time and I did not imagine that it could be so much fun! I kept having to wipe away a big goofy grin that crept onto my face from time to time. What a sight I must have been if anyone happend to glance my way at the right second... especially with my brown mushroom-shaped helmet (complete with Hawaiian pattern of neon green palms, pink flowers and an 'I love my brain' logo).
A racing heartbeat and intense burn in my thighs was certainly a bonus, but the wind in my face and the overwhelming sense of accomplishment took center stage.
I don't know why I waited so long to get a bike.
