(That’s supposed to be a play on “this is your brain on drugs.” But maybe that reference is lost on the young people, so here’s a link.)
Did I mention I bought a bike? It’s the first bike I’ve ever purchased. I don’t think I ever had a new bike before, even as a kid.
This bike is fun. I didn’t exactly mean to choose a pink bike, but it’s the one they had in stock. I might have picked a dark green or a sky blue if I’d had my druthers.
I’ve ridden a few times. I wanted to try to ride to work, about a 4.8 mile ride, but I’ve needed to bring my laptop home with me and don’t feel ready to strap that to my back and ride yet.
4.8 miles would be farther than I’ve probably ever ridden on a bike before, and I’m a little intimidated to try it, but I’m also a stubborn person, and it’s hard to dissuade me once I set my mind to something.
I’m thinking I won’t need to bring my laptop home with me tomorrow, so maybe Thursday will be the day for me to ride to work.
Here are some more photos of me on the bike, with my rockin’ helmet.
