Pure Happiness

I hate the fact that I'm old enough to say that I haven't done something in 12 years, but I can. Until this past weekend, I haven't been on a bike in 12 years. That's just piss poor. Seriously, I remember riding my bike every day in the summer when I was kid. Now, I've gone more than a decade without ever riding one. Weird.

But, I'm pleased to announce that this past weekend, that all changed! Admist the packing and moving frenzy, Shane and I took some time off to go and buy me a bike. Odd timing, I know. But really, it's because we're moving that I wanted to get a bike. I'm going to be no more than a mile from work starting next week, and driving seems a bit unnecessary. So, my bike will be my new form of transportation. I'll still need my car somedays, and when winter hits, I'm not sure I'll be tough enough to deal with the Wisconsin weather, but I'm going to try to stick it out for as long as I can.

Here's a picture of the Trek Pure I bought. Isn't she sweet? I still need to name her. Not sure I've come up with anything better than Buttercup or Sheila. Suggestions are always welcome!

Oh, and I did take her for a spin. A great ride!

She looks like a "Cream Dream Machine" to me. :)

MOST excellent Carrie!

And I am a terrible terrible terrible friend that I did not know you are moving!

We'll have to get together soon so I can get the low-down!

I love my bike, although it does not look shnazzy like yours. Im jealous!
