Today though - :)
First - My honey surprised me by loading me into the car and driving me to the Cow Palace where they were having a bike expo! Granted, I know next to nothing about bikes but even I know quality 'horse flesh' when I see it. I picked up some nice biking gloves, a tiny little 1.5 liter water pack and...
A new bike!
I take back everything I ever said about road bikes being 'no big deal'.
Seriously! I grew up riding 10 speeds from Montgomery Ward. This trail bike of mine is the nicest bike I've ever owned. Then today I sat on a quality road bike - O...M...G...! It was like... wearing silk after lifetime of wool underwear! Totally different beast! Once I rode it I knew I had to have it :) luckily it was totally in my price range.
Of course when I got home, at 9:30PM,I HAD to ride it. I happily road the new bike for almost 30 minutes and I was still ready to go more. It was just too cold and too foggy to keep going. Still - just goofing around I made it 5.5 miles - without even trying! Bike riding is fun again. Although, I do understand for the first time ever why people wear padded underwear! I have a pair but could take 'em or leave 'em. Not with this bike... OUCH!
