Riding In The Wind

Gads! I didn't have a bicycle for three months. Where did the time go?

I was riding a bike every day when I was living at the little hippie house.

Then when I moved to this apartment I didn't ride as often.

Then the bike was stolen.

I bought a used bike from a woman in town.

The tires wouldn't hold air.

The nice man in town who works on bicycles worked on my bike.

He changed the tires, changed the seat to a comfy one, and repaired the gears.

Wowzer! I went riding today.

Liking Me Some Bike Riding.

After I took this picture I saw the cords to lamps I added for more light when my friends come to play dominoes and cards on the round table. Oh well, at least the cords aren't hanging around on the floor to trip someone.

Glad you have a bike again! It is always nice to be able to ride on a bike!

I have a bike whose tires won't hold air right now, but I may wait until spring to deal with that. How great that the nice man who works on bikes got yours up and running for you. Enjoy your rides.

It's been a long time since I've been on a bike, but you never forget how to ride...right?

Someone stole your bike? From the new place??? That's not good! Glad you have found another one and it's up and running. Enjoy!

OH, I always love bicycle pics! Glad you're back on the road. Stolen? So sad...

I can't believe someone stole your other bike. That is so mean. Or maybe, it just ended up with someone who really needed it more at the time. I'm glad you got a new one. It looks clean and comfy. Better buy a good lock! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the season. A big hug to you!

I bought a used bike this past summer and have been enjoying riding... not a whole lot but when I do it sure is fun. :-)

3 months do fly. Hello CiCi, riding in the wind is the best and I miss it too.

You make me want to go bike riding! I'll wait for it to warm back up again though.

Looks like the bike that my wife uses, although hers also has a shopping basket on the front.

Hope you get in some good rides before the weather turns!

Nice bike and what a nice guy to help you fix it up! Hope the snow stays away longer so you can enjoy it more.

Stop by, I'm having a Christmas Giveaway!
