The one presented that day was a "placeholder," until I could get into the store to explain what kind of riding I intended, and so the bike could be fit to me. I did that this weekend. It was an extra treat, because the owner of the bike shop I patronize is a very good friend from high school, and it's always fun to catch up and, in the case of bikes, pick the brain of someone whose expertise I trust.
So now I can embark on my bike riding adventures! With Prince CuddleBunny at my side on his own bike, I took my first jaunt around our neighborhood this morning.
|My Canondale, 24-speed 'hybrid.' Mostly road bike, |
but ok on paths and gravel when necessary.
It's my first bike since I gave up on my too-big,
chain-always-fell-off, high school 10-speed 30 yrs ago.
After that frigid maiden voyage, I may soon be investing in some of those padded bicycling pants, and some insulated, windproof clothing!
