She is a Craigslist find and might be the first thing I even bought off craigslist. I have sold things but I have never bought.
In Portland bikes are more numerous than cars and dogs. While driving through downtown I regularly get caught behind a street bike which I swear adds 30 minutes to my commute. I mean do they HAVE ride down the middle of the road? Anyways, after living here for a few years I made up my mind I would NEVER turn into a biker.
Well, Monday at 1:00pm I officially became a bike owner. But, let me tell you this bike is only made for downhill and flat streets. Grass is even out of the question. But, you know what? I love Blue!
You may be asking, why I all of a sudden decided to buy a bike? It is because of this guy:
|ahhhh hahahaha!! Doesn't this picture crack you up?!!|
We were quite the site last night on our first run. I took the sidewalk and Kev took the bike lane. Now, If I can only convince the Portland Marathon Committee that I need to bike next to my team on the actual race day!
|No, I am not yelling at Kev in this picture. This face is what my college roommates coined at my "sexy face". Why didn't anyone tell me that when I am trying to look sexy I actually look scary?!!|
