Now I know why that saying is true. It's been over 20 years since I last rode a bicycle. Last November BLT surprised me with the cutest, girliest pink Schwinn called the Debutant. Today I purchased a brain bucket, thank you Bikin for the suggestions, and a nice basket for the front. I raised the seat, attached the basket, and checked the tires- then it was off for my first bike ride in twenty years! It started to sprinkle after half an hour, and I had to go get Monkey Pants from a birthday party anyway, but it was a great first ride!
I can't wait to go out again!
