How I Roll...




Last weekend I was browsing through the latest Ready Made magazine and there it was, a bike that caught my eye. A bike you ask? Yes. A bike, this bike: a 21-Speed Baby Blue Pearl Electra Townie. Although it's been 7 or 8 years since I've been on one, once I saw it I knew I had to have it. We went to REI to see what they had, we got there 5 minutes before closing, were kind of rushed, and didn't see what I wanted. The next morning we headed to Ibikes and I tried a couple of models. I found the perfect fit and bought it! I love this bike and the way it rides!
As far as bikes go it is a little pricey, but exactly what I need for my back and leg issues. It's also great to have a bike now that Bean has taken off her training wheels, so now we can ride together as a family! The other great part: Electra has a full line of accessories for your bike. Look! I've already started my wish list:
1. Fuzzy leopard seat
2. Fuzzy leopard handle grips
3. Quick-release wicker basket
4. Either dice or skull valve caps
and last but not least-
5. Coffee cupholder ( yes! they really make one!)
My birthday is coming up here in a couple of weeks, I better get busy hinting to family and friends. Happy Spring!!
