Watch Out Lance Armstrong

So, for our anniversary, we decided to purchase some bikes. Due to my lack of cycling skills, I had some major criteria that my bike needed to meet. First and foremost, it needed to be pink. Second, I needed to be able to touch the ground while sitting on the seat. And three, it needed a great big cushiony seat. Comfort is very important, my friends.

I ended up with an Electra Townie 3i in pink pearl. The Townie is great for two types of riders: those who are rather timid on a bike and older bike riders. I figure for now I fit into the first category, and eventually I'll be in the second. That's a win-win.

Call it an old lady bike if you must, but I call it awesome.

Here I am on Pink Thunder 2.
(I owned the original Pink Thunder back when I was 5.)

We bought them from Bicycles Inc. They were great to work with, and of course they let me test ride it a few weeks ago. We bought helmets too because we're safe like that.

See you on the road when it gets a little cooler.


  1. The differences in photographers is so funny! (ok, maybe only a photographer would notice that!)
    Brad may not be as talented as you behind the camera, but his subject was still makes a good picture!
    You are rocking that pink thunder!

  2. In my defense, Jennifer, I took her picture with my iPhone, while she was using some fancy shmancy camera. Still, I agree that Emily has some mad photog skills.

  3. I'll call Lance and tell him not to worry. I know the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

  4. Mom, are you calling me SLOW?!? :)
