Because we'll be traveling on father's day, I got my father's day present a little early: a new bike. And THIS is the kind of bike even I understand. No ten speed. No three speed. Simple ONE speed. And you break by back pedaling. That's MY kind of bike - the kind I remember from being a kid. Cindi and I took out our bikes for an evening ride (no way you could call this "the cool of the day" though), and it worked like a charm. Effortless. Light, aluminum frame. Only thing that I'm not crazy about is cosmetic: It's WHITE. And it has a patriotic theme on the thingy covering the whatchemacallit that turns with the pedal. I am really looking forward to some long rides on the new bike trails around here.
