The bike shop owner dreaded telling me that if I wanted a bike to fit my petite build, the frame alone would start at $3000. OUCH! I honestly wasn't surprised. Being small has always made having "normal" things hard. Good cycling bikes start around $500 & go UP! Sound crazy? I am sure it does if you aren't into biking or know nothing about it. It's all new to me really. It's exciting though to think about how in shape I will be. So I ended up with a youth sized bike that the shop owner had custom built himself,...for way less money. ;) Not only do Kara and Dan inspire me to bike, but when I watched the Olympics and saw the women cyclists I was so fascinated with it. I thought to myself, "How awesome would that be?"
I painted this after I bought my bike! I'm a dork, yes.
So apparently Cannondale is a really GOOD brand of bike. Kara and Dan said I may turn heads. LOL I think it's funny. It should be fun though to be out there on a somewhat "fancy" bike. Cody and I have plans to workout a lot this winter. I really want to get in great shape, especially before having a baby. Kara and Dan just biked all the way up to the summit at the Rocky Mountains. AMAZING. I can barely do a small hill. So, my goal is to be as good as them.
There was a double rainbow in the sky!
Isn't my bike so cute? Road bikes do not have kick stands, so I leaned it up against my car for a quick photo. I did want a bike that had more white on it or pink. This bike couldn't be ordered or anything, so I just had to buy it the way it was. A bit more boyish then I wanted but I do love it. Great thing is I will be able to change things and add hot pink accessories.
I also found a Sea Shepherd biking jersey! Can you say perfect?
It's expensive though, that jersey will have to wait!
Oh I am so excited!! Too bad that summer is ending. :(
Here is a photo of me with my bike going on my first ride...
