It sounded like I had a goose sitting on my handle bars.

Yesterday J-Bird & I went on our first bike ride together in almost 3 years. That, my bloggy friends, is exciting.

Pinky needs some work, which we knew. She’s almost as old as I am. In bike years, that’s like 42. She’s getting ready to hit menopause for pete’s sake. We started out having to pump air in her tires (of course). Which, for the record, I hate the sound of. Reminds me of balloons too much. So I made J-Bird go out on the porch to do it out of earshot.

I’m not gonna lie to you guys, the first few minutes on Pinky were terrifying. I was so wobbly & nervous (well, we lowered the seat almost as low as it would go & my feet would still barely reach the ground, I’m sort-of vertically challenged), but as soon as we got out on the road & the wind started whipping through my hair, I was fine.

Until I had to hit the brakes, that is. We’re pretty sure that Pinky needs some new brakes, as it sounded like I had a goose sitting on my handle bars honking at all the innocent people.

We did discover a park we’d never seen only a few blocks over from us, with this cool boulder climbing rock thing. Which, of course, we stopped to climb. Or should I say, we stopped to I could watch & laugh as J-Bird climbed. What? I wasn’t wearing the proper shoes. Everyone knows you have to wear cute sandals to go bike riding. Duh.

I’m super excited about our next adventure on our bikes, the only downside? My tush really hurts from riding. J-Bird says this never happens to him, but if I ride more than a few minutes, it happens to me every time. Seriously, I had to sit on a pillow just to put my make-up on this morning. This is the only day that I’ve ever been excited about having to stand at work. My tush totally hates me right now.

  1. I am literally LOL at the thought of you sitting on a pillow because your “tushy” hurts from bike riding! Bahaha. Okay, and seriously I feel your pain on the vertical issues. I was testing out bikes at Wal-Mart the other week and my feet couldn’t touch. So, my boyfriend had to hold the bike steady while I hopped on and started peddling. (Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who rides a bike around Wal-Mart.) So, basically I’m like a 5 year old?!

    1. Haha!! We totally tried out a bike the other week in Target! Yea, J-Bird had to adjust the seat like 4 times just so my feet can kinda touch the ground. I still struggle. And flail.
