I like to think that if I were physically able I would run everywhere, dance my way into a room or maybe do cartwheels. I would take some wild aerobic dance classes and jump a lot for no reason. I would walk around giving high-fives to everyone, throw out a thumbs-up to anything remotely cool and participate in lots of parades just so I could give the beauty pageant wave. If you can do those things, please humor me and go do it now, it’s such a gift – oh but wait, read my blog first!
Another thing in my dream bucket list was ride to a bike. I thought it would be so fun to do evening bike rides with my husband. It is such an awesome way to end the day and get some exercise. Winding through the neighborhood, soaking in the sounds of kids playing and the glow of lights and flickering TVs in each passing house.
I had not been on a bike since using a 3-wheeled bike when I was young. I was not sure if I could handle a regular bike and navigate the pedaling and take-off process without crashing.
To get me started my husband bought me this bike for my birthday. It was the best gift ever. We have spent a lot of time cruising bike trails and exploring our neighborhood. It’s funny because a few times when we were out I heard older folks say things like, “oh I haven’t seen a bike like that in a long time.” I wonder if they think I picked it because I thought it was vintage and cool?
I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the guts to try a normal bike, but for now, I love my three wheels!
