We finally took the plunge yesterday and bought the bike we’ve been eyeing for me since 4th of July weekend. Performance Bike was having an anniversary sale plus double points for their members and yesterday was the last day to capitalize on that combo deal. Since it was such an expensive purchase, we’re calling it an early birthday present from James & my dad.
After we brought the bike home, we rode to our local park for a picnic dinner. Instead of packing our own food, we brought Subway :). It was a nice and fairly easy ride because we rode through mostly residential streets, taking the same path I use to get to work everyday.
I’m definitely looking forward to more biking adventures and relying on it more as means of transportation instead of driving. Hopefully, this new bike will get more use than my old beach cruiser, which sadly, was only ridden 4 times in 7 years :(.
