I Got My New Ride!!!!
Sunday, March 05, 2017
Getting some final adjustments and add-ons before coming home.
She so much lighter than my old bike and much easier to maneuver on and off the bike rack. That will make riding away from home so much easier!
I was very excited about taking her home and getting her out on the road for the first time.
This is my friend, DoItDottie, adding her new ride to the rack.
Had to make sure that we were all secure before taking off.
On our way home.
As soon as we got home, we bundled up and went out for a ride. It didn't matter that it felt like 25 degrees outside or that it was windy. We just wanted to get that inaugural ride under our belts. We rode for 30 minutes and it was like a dream! Loved every minute of it.
Have to say, though, I think I'm going to be a little sore. My new ride is a little different in size and style than what I used to ride and, because my riding position is a little different, I can feel the difference in how my muscles are being used.
Next scheduled ride is Tuesday, but, who knows? I may have to sneak in a ride tomorrow, too!
"After your first day of cycling, one dream is inevitable. A memory of motion lingers in the muscles of your legs, and round and round they seem to go. You ride through Dreamland on wonderful dream bicycles that change and grow." ( H.G. Wells, The Wheels of Chance)
