A huge thank you to those who gave me birthday money. This is what I bought!
Yes, it's like what it looks like... an adult tricycle.
I remember at age of 11 riding my bike and hitting a parked car and flying over the handlebars. Yes, embarrassing and clutzy but it deterred me from riding for a long, long time. I still am not the best when it comes to balance. In addition I'd like to be able to attach a trailer and take Peter and Michael along for the ride. Both are still too young/ uncoordinated to pedal properly, etc.
So I am thrilled to be living in area where I can have a bike and actually ride my bike... like to the grocery store! Or around the neighborhood. By the water. So excited.
I love it! I can't believe how much I look forward to going on a ride. I'm sure to some people it's silly seeing a tricycle... but as the septuagenarian said to me today, "You gotta a nice ride!" I was tempted to fist pump and yell "Oh Yeah!" Instead I waved and as I rode on by said, "Thank you!"
