I Have a Little Surprise for You!







Here it is! My lovely new Electra Townie bicycle that I just picked up yesterday morning from Hoffy’s Cycles at Sandgate. The people there were super nice and helpful and now I even know how to take off the front wheel and put it on (very simple!)
The bike is pretty heavy and very solid and sturdy. As I haven’t ridden in about 12 years it was weird getting onto it at first but once I got my balance it was fine. I took her for a little spin around the neighbourhood yesterday and it was AMAAZING!! It was like being a kid again I felt free and unencumbered!
Mind you I almost fell off about 3 times as I was trying to get used to the gears. It has 7 speeds but I was always used to riding bikes with single speeds so I think this may take a little getting used to.
But I am going to take her over to where I used to live next week as it is close to a a large expanse of walkways. I want to stay away from roads as much as possible especially while I am getting used to it.
Also if you are wondering why I am inside instead of out in these pics it is because it is steaming today and hot weather and the sun make me feel sick. I can’t wait until the weather is cooler so I can take her out in the daytime!

  4. Yay...it's lovely!! I'm so adoring it right now:) The little floral lined basket is truly sweet. I need to find my old bike and start riding again. I'm always afraid I wouldn't know how after so many years...hehe. You of course look perfectly pretty as always!! xx Marisa
