There are two beauties in this picture:
One- My Kylie who is sweetly shucking corn for our dinner and
Two- My brand new Specialized Amira Road bike.
I'm in love with it with my new bike. The night before I got it, I woke up several times because I was as excited as a kid before Christmas morning. The folks at the bike shop were fabulous. I was worried I would end up with some bike snobs or someone who wouldn't want to sell a bike to a biking goof like me. But my salesguy told me that customers like me, ones that were excited to get started, were so fun to work with.
I did one session on the indoor trainer you see pictured here. Let me tell you...BIG difference on the seat. My tailbone is talking to me! And today I took it for a ride around the neighborhood. And I only fell off twice. Well, actually four times but I only hit the grass twice. Let's just say that starting and stopping are very different with my new bike.
I feel so silly and goofy while riding it and yet so happy and excited at the same time. It's an interesting mix of feelings.
