I had been happily riding Marc's bike to and from our community garden -- but really, as a $20.00 Craigslist find over a year ago, it was kind of a piece of crap. But it had 2 wheels and it worked. No working kick-stand, though, that was kind of a pain. So I was very happy to find out that for my birthday he got me this ensemble:
A cute little cruiser bike, and a trailer for Mason! I am so excited. We've been riding in it almost daily (my legs are feeling it, let me tell you, that's not a small 2 year old you see there). I love that the trailer is super easy to unhitch so I can still take the bike out after Mase has gone to bed, for a quick spin around the neighborhood. There's just something awesome-feeling about pumping your legs really hard up a hill to get to the big payoff of being able to whizz down the other side with the wind (and bugs) in your hair (and eyes).
And Mason LOVES it.
Here's my pocket.
Can you take my drink?
I'll give you one more "cheese", begrudgingly.
Now let's get this show on the road!
I really want to get a basket for the front of the bike, too. A wicker one, maybe?
