Only from God

I have been frantically obsessing over getting a bike for the past four weeks or so. An inspiring friend of mine shared this blog with me, which totally got me wanting to join the cycling world. I live in a small enough town, about six miles from work and there's no reason to take a car. I began to search pretty much daily for a bicycle, not knowing exactly what I wanted or what was best. Not wanting to spend too much money on something I had no experience with, and sort of in a risky city. The sensible man I'm dating advised me to take it slow on my purchase, and I took his advice.

Yesterday I arrived to the office after lunch to a message from a co-worker with a link to a local ad website that said "FREE WOMEN'S CRUISER"! A lady that is moving to Chicago was giving away a bike and it so happened to be nearly exactly what I wanted! A one speed, coaster break, cruiser.

I rode it tonight around the neighborhood and felt like a little kid again. I'm so excited for this new adventure!
