I totally heart my bike! I ride it around town looking like a nerd with my upright position and old school handle bars, but it handles smoothly and is a sweet ride.
Since picking it up after its annual tuneup,I've been riding it all over the place. Mostly to school and back since it's a 2 mile round trip, but also on errands. Thursday I rode it to Zumba class and yesterday to the bike shop and hairdresser.
When I run, my calves feel strong. When I ride, my thighs feel strong. When all is said and done, I know my body IS growing stronger and that is the thing I like the best of all.
