Biking in the Ohio Countryside

Hello everyone,
I got a new bicycle about a week ago! I hadn't even been on a bike for many years, but had been thinking about it for a while, so finally started looking for one. I wanted just a regular, old-fashioned bike...nothing fancy...just one speed...the kind of bike I rode as a child. Well, I found exactly what I wanted at Wal Mart! I love the aqua and white color, which looks very "retro" to me. The wicker basket didn't come with it - I bought that on ebay.


The weather was perfect yesterday, so I took a long ride. It's so much fun (although my back and thighs are sore today from riding too far!) It's a good thing it's very "flat" where I live, as I don't think I'd make it up any steep hills!

See the Beauty!







Until next time,
Cindy

Good for you getting out for a bike ride. I have a bike like yours but I haven't even ridden it this year. I better get the tires pumped up and get going.

I love your bike, Cindy. I had the same idea last year and had my son fix up my bike - it's great exercise and makes you feel like a kid again, eh? Love your new basket too! And what pretty country you live in. Looks like a fun time.

What a beautiful place you live. I would love biking on the flat roads. We have nothing but hills here. Cool bike. Do you prune your hydrangea? If so, don't, and see if it will bloom. Good luck.
