Day 7 - I want a bike

Sunday, July 17, 2011

I'm thinking about buying a bike. My boys love their bikes, and any time I tell them we are going for a walk they ask "can we ride our bikes." They love going for "walks", and in fact this week as soon as I get home from work they start asking me when it is time to go walk. The only problem is, I can't keep up with them! They go racing off down the hill, although they have to stop and wait for me at every corner.

I tried riding one of the boys bikes, I'm only 5'3" so I thought I might fit, but it was obviously built for a pre/early teen boy. I circled our cul-de-sac and them immediately hopped off.

So then I started looking at bikes online. Wal-Mart carries ladies bike for under $100, so I'm thinking at then end of the month I might be getting one. I don't want to wait too long or I might not get to use it much this year.

Maybe I'll go check them out today.

    Try a bike shop if you can to see what size bike you need. That can make a huge difference in riding comfort if the fit is right. Also, what kind of riding surface are you planning on riding on most of the time? There are different tires, styles etc. We just bought a new seat and grips for my husbands bike and it made all the difference for him.

    I hope you get your bike soon! One of my mini goals is to be able to ride a bike with my young grandson before it gets too cold this year!! Right now he rides his bike (he's 4) when we go on walks! He regularly asks me, "Momma, are you big enough for a bike yet?" I'm getting there!!!

    Have a great week! emoticon
