I just bought a bike! This one, to be exact:
I was looking for a bike with a “natural,” or upright, riding position (hunching over the handlebars in the normal position was always really uncomfortable for me). I also wanted to have at least a chance of keeping up with J and his road bike, so thin tires were a must. Trek describes this little number as a “true hybrid,” the “perfect marriage of toughness and efficiency.” I love it! It even has a bell! And it certainly has helped out with no. 13.
We’ve already taken short jaunts to the library and our local farmer’s market, as well as a longer, 12-mile ride on a nearby greenway. I bought a pair of these (the capri, not short, length, but the exact style doesn’t seem to be on the site) with biking in mind this weekend and love them. Now I’m dreaming of the perfect basket. Which is your favorite? Do you have any great online cycling sources I should know about?
