BikerPosted: May 24, 2010
Good evening! I have some good news! I finally bit the bullet and got my bike!
Please excuse my flash…someone stepped on my camera this weekend and the screen no longer works. Yes I am bummed about it, but it still works and I do not have the funds to get a new after buying my bike!
REI is having an anniversary sale with 15% off all bikes and I knew it was no or never to try and get my bike. Cannondale CAAD Women’s 8.
I took her out for a ride yesterday and it was such a difference from my mountain bike. For one I clipped in (I only fell off once) and my biked just seemed smoother and went further. I ended up doing about 23 slow miles. I wanted to get used to the bike and the trail was a little to bumpy to go fast on a road bike. I saw so many cute farm homes in back country Maryland. I need to take her out on the open road, but I have a race to train for in less than 2 weeks!!!
I am already checking out races in the area and I am excited for this new adventure.
Next step in my life…save for new camera…what kind should I get????
