A New Bicycle for Spring!
I finally bought a bicycle! I wanted to share a few photos of my shiny new bike - I just bought it yesterday and took it for a spin around the neighborhood. I've been meaning to purchase a bike for a long while now and since it has been gorgeous outside lately, it was the perfect time. Yesterday afternoon, it was beautiful and sunny outside - what a great opportunity to explore the streets and paths all around my neighborhood!
I purchased a retro-styled purple cruiser bike, complete with a cute (yet very functional) basket on the front to carry my things! The bike is made by Everyday Bicycles and it is called the Kensington 6-speed Cruiser Bike. I got it for $199 at my local Canadian Tire - yeah, I would have liked to have bought it at an actual cycling store, but the bicycles there all started at a $500 minimum it seemed, and I couldn't justify spending that much right now. Anyway, it is a fantastic bike and I love the color and style! I think it is just perfect for me. Looking forward to fitness and fun!
