For a while now, I've been eyeing up peoples' bicycles as they pass me by,
admiring girls in their cute (yet practical) bike ride outfits,
and knowing that this pay day was going to be time for a two-wheeled investment...
...Isn't she beautiful!!
Samm is a mad keen biker but I actually haven't ridden a bike properly since I was about 10,
so this is an adventure for me.
When the man at the shop asked me if I wanted to take her for a ride,
I had to sternly tell him not to laugh
(which he did anyway!)
One of my biggest driving (cycling) forces in my desire to get some wheels has been the beautiful blog The Citybirds Nest where the lovely cb often shares her little biking adventures.
I just had to see what all the fuss was about!
Does anybody else cycle? Any tips?
I'm already having little panic moments of
"can I really carry off helmet hair at this age?",
"what if I can't remember how to put the chain back on when it comes off?",
"how do girls stay decent when they wear skirts on a bike?"
I'm off for a bike ride and a picnic on Wednesday to celebrate Samm's last deadline of his course,
Here's hoping the sun stays out until then.
Have a gorgeous weekend.
