new wheels

I drive to the studio about 3 times a day without the kids...usually late at night.

It's a mile each way from our house. That's 6 miles a day x 365 days a year = 2,100+ miles a year.

I decided I needed a bike. I had a bike, but I didn't like it. It had gears and I don't know how to ride a bike with gears....yes, yes, I'm a loser.

I knew I wanted an old time looking bike and I knew I wanted a basket, but when I saw this one, I loved it. The basket was so big, I could carry my purse, and my laptop, misc work, a drink, etc, etc.

So, of course I went back and forth about whether a three wheel bike is uncool...Okay, let's face it, it's a giant tricycle. Of course it's uncool, but I love it, and I don't care. If they weren't making fun of the giant trike, they'd be making fun of the giant fat girl riding a 2 wheel bike.

I vow to not use my basket to pick up aluminum cans though!

I love the bike, and I am jealous. I think I am going to get out my old lady red one with the basket and ride to Dr Saliba's. Hey, maybe we could form an old lady bike gang.

The bike is awesome! I actually thought about getting this one when I was looking at bikes. I'm sooo jealous! Before you know it, other people in Newton will jump on the bandwagon and have one, too!
