Country Girl in the City - Work Dinner & Ride

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!
