My beloved 1st adult bike


Beginning: when my husband basically forced me to buy a bike three years ago, I was in my early thirties, a bit overweight, and hadn’t exercised in a decade… My bike was the catalyst for a huge transformation: three years later I ride my bike almost everywhere I go (I use my car less than once a month- even in the winter!), I run six miles four to five days a week, and while I’m not as thin as I’d like to be, I eat what I want and feel better and healthier every day. And it was all thanks to that first terrifying, exhilarating ride. I now ride a much cooler Motobecane Cafe Noir, but I will always love my electric blue Cannondale.
