Hello, I would like you all to meet my dear bike. This is Jedi. She’s been good to me over the past few years and is still going strong. I have ridden so many miles and thought so many thoughts on this bike. I love going for long bike rides to clear my head. I love taking only the essentials with me and pounding the pedals until I am so focused on riding that nothing else seems to exist. I love pretending I can use the force on the cars in the road, persuading them away from my precious body and bike. (Safety with a good helmet and bright lights is one thing, but mind-control is a whole other playing field!)
I talked about my love for bikes in my post last week and I wanted to share my personal bike with you. I’m thinking about sharing some of the bikes I would love to own alongside Jedi (such as Han or Geordi) as well as a post on what I wear when I’m cycling. For now, let’s all just sit back and take in how beautiful my bike is.
I am going on a ride tomorrow with some friends. It should be a good long one and I’m really excited. Usually I ride solo, but it’ll be nice to get out and share cycling with people I care about. I bought a computer for my bike awhile ago and finally got it set up. I am excited to see how fast (or slow, depending on the wind) I ride and the total miles for my trip tomorrow and all the other rides to come. I know, I’m a numbers geek.
Do you ride? What kind of bicycle do you have or want to have?
