reunited & it feels so gooooood

Yesterday I needed to go to the post office, which is downtown right off of Pearl St. It was gorgeous & sunny outside. I decided I didn't want to drive so I loaded up my Patagonia Half-Mass and aired up the tires on my road bike. I talked Chase into showing me the bike paths to get there & so we were off!

We rode round-trip around 8 miles and it felt so great to be reunited with my vintage road bike ((although my legs hate me today)).  We got her some new grip tape & now she doesn't look so ragged ((the other grip tape was ripped & unraveling)).

I love love love riding my bike! Now I just need to get my townie back in my possession ((let a friend borrow it while we were gone)) so I can cruise to the grocery store for last minute trips instead of driving every time. 


So ready for the summer so I can cruise around town without my hands freezing! :) 

love.

  8. What an adorable bike! I have a giant blue cruiser which is great for riding around the beach, but that single gear is KILLER on San Francisco hills!

  10. What fun! My step-daughter and I rode our bikes quite a bit last spring and loved it! She has now moved away to college so I guess my rides will be a bit more lonely now...but still good fun and exercise! :)
