All I want to do is ride my new bike! I bought it on Saturday and have already logged close to 40 miles on it!
I have discovered that there are several bike trails really close to my condo too, so every afternoon off I go!
The best part of my ride is taking in the beautiful scenery of downtown Seattle, Lake Union, and the Space Needle! Plus, I found an app to "Map My Ride". It shows me all sorts of cool stuff!
We had a work dinner last night, so I needed to get back downtown by 5:30 pm. So I took off on my bike to take the long way around Lake Union at 4 pm.
My boyfriend rode with me, and we decided to stop at Lake Union Park. We had a killer view of the Space Needle!
A sea plane landed while I was sitting there on a bench at Lake Union Park. They are really neat to see up close!
Then I rode the rest of the way to work. I felt like such a Seattlite pulling up to work on my bike and with my helmet on and legs feeling like jello! But then we ate at this Mexican restaurant for dinner, and I didn't feel bad about having a little extra chips and guacamole. I knew I would be burning off those calories on the bike ride back home.
On my way home I recognized a friend of mine riding his bike too! So we stopped for a minute to catch up and say hello. I thought that was the coolest thing ever! When I was got about 2 blocks from my house, I had to stop and take a picture. I've NEVER seen this, and I've lived here for how long??!!! So pretty!
I still feel like a Country Girl In The City. It's a very foreign thing for me to ride my bike to work. All these other bicylists seem to have a confidence about them that I do not have yet, but I'm going to keep riding until I feel that comfortable on my bike too!
Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.
Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...
Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.
Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:
Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
