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!
