Bicycle!

Somebody has a birthday this week... and that somebody got an awesome new bicycle as a giftie! Wahooo!!!
     I've already been on a nice ride and I LOVE it!
     Things to notice - it's quite retro with its two tone color scheme and white wall tires. I think I'm going to get a basket for the back rack too. And it has a kick stand and A BELL!! Oh YES!!! Ding! Ding! Ding!
     I haven't had a bike for ten years and boy howdy are those muscles telling me so. Even so, I'm itching to get back on it. I wonder if I'll be able to swim? (I swim for an hour every other day.) Hm. We'll see...

     UPDATE! Last night Stan attached a basket to the back for me. We already had it (go figure) and it is just perfect! And yes, the bike is sitting in our dining room. It's raining outside, so I must look at the bike instead of ride it... (Again, click to see a larger version.)
     Oh, and swimming went fine - it's a completely different set of muscles! I just can't sit very well... :)

     In honor, we all must sing along at the top of our lungs to Queen's "Bicycle Race" (with a lovely video by some inspired young enthusiasts):

Nice bike! I remember getting back on my first bike after years away from riding. It was a bit of a challenge at first, but if you're anything like me, after a week or so, you'll be back into it like nothing.

Swimming went fine this morning - it really is a different set of muscles. The hardest thing has been sitting in my car. Owie! :)
