New Bicycle

Middlebrow got me a new bike for our anniversary. If you want to see my actual bike click on "Daisy 3" (the orange and yellow one). Mine has a sweet basket too. Middlebrow has promised to take a picture of me on it, hopefully with a baguette in the basket. And I'll be wearing a skirt, looking all French and shit.
Since I got my bike (on Saturday), I've taken to riding around the neighborhood in the evening. Son likes to ride too, and he's getting pretty good about watching for cars and being safe.
But what I love most is riding around the neighborhood without a helmet. And wearing a skirt! Now, I know I'm supposed to be safe, but really. I'm only riding on side streets. And riding down the street with the wind in your hair at night. Well, it really reminds me of being a kid. I'm not going anywhere. I'm just riding my bike up and down the street. And around the block. I even rode my bike to a reading in my neighborhood tonight. I've also promised Son that we'll ride our bikes to the gelato place in our hood some evening.
I think the Cruiser, as a bicycle type, might help restore the fun in exercise. I've ridden quite a bit in the last few days, just toodling around.
I think toodling is my new favorite form of exercise.

After the Wasatch Back, I think all your exercise should come in the form of toodling, and should involve gelato.

Congrats on your new bike! What a great anniversary present.

I love my cruiser. I haven't ridden it with a skirt (too many bad memories of my missionary days), but I almost never ride it with a helmet. That makes me worry sometimes, but don't sporty helmets look sort of weird with old-fashioned cruisers. I'm just saying.

Cute I love my cruiser too. I agree, it is the best way to toodle. And in a skirt. How very French indeed. Foo de Faux Faux (have you heard that song from Flight of the Conchords?)

woot! We can go toodling together. Let me know and I will ride over your way. I head over that way to my studio often enough on my cool bike!

I voted for the Gypsy, but I see that MB went against my wishes (as usual).
