Hubby is my Enabler

One of the first checks for my most recent Bucket List is beginning to form, thanks to my Christmas gift from Hubby.  He gave me a bike and helmet for Christmas!  

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!
