The bike is here!




Love it!

I do have to say I forgot how hard riding is! What a great workout!!! I have gone out for a couple of very short rides. On my first ride out I totally wiped out and skinned both my knee and elbow. Sure it hurt but I think my pride was far more wounded! It turns out the tires were very under low on air so off I went to go get a tire pump. After that it was much better, no more falls so far.

My goal is to get out on the bike everyday, increasing my distance and conquering the hills on my street. I also plan to make a basket for the front of the bike. It is a one speed bike which I love and hate. I like the simplicity but I am not so sure about the foot brakes. I will update more tomorrow!

I looked at that bike, too! I just got my first bike since I was little today as well, for my birthday! We can learn together! It IS way harder than I remember too :)

Thanks Ladies! I saw the bike about a month ago while doing some shopping and just fell in love. It was pretty pricey for me at $120. It was a risk since I tend to jump in and then give up. I just couldn't pass it up. I think I visited the bike like 10 times before I got it lol! I ended up ordering it online for $99 (well the husband did for my birthday).
