I got a new bike!
It’s the red one in that picture. My old one was just about 15 years old and hadn’t really worked in some time, so we headed out and bought the finest velocipede that Target had to offer that wasn’t stupid expensive. It goes well with Becky’s bike, which was a replacement for her purple one that someone nicked from the garage one night when I accidentally left the door open. I tell myself someone grabbed it because their car broke down and they had to get that kidney to the hospital in time to save that orphan’s life!
Becky covets my red bike and has been asking me for my social security number a lot recently. I’m just putting that out there.
So we found a sneaky back way to Forest Park that doesn’t involve Sumner Avenue, which is nice. And I just used Google Earth to find out that our route to Forest Park is 1.25 miles one way. Once around the main route there is three-quarters of a mile. So yesterday, when we “only” went to the park and did one lap, we biked 4.25 miles! Yay us! I know that doesn’t seem like much, but it’s a lot more exercise than I’m used to, and I really dig it.
Do you have a bike? You should!
