Just For Me

I love, love, love my bike! I've had it for a few years and it is really the nicest bike I have ever had - complete with handy-dandy wire basket in the front for my extra layers of clothing, water, camera... and stuff. You know? See my mittens in there - it was 6C this morning when I started off (that would be almost 43F). And windy! I wear Nana's headband under my bike helmet - keeps the wind out of my ears. And I have a windproof fleece jacket.

I took some photos on the way back - my ride is pretty much right along the water and marshes. Absolutely beautiful!

2 hour rides - a few times a week.


Just me. Just for me.

I ride my bike to/from work. But lately it has been HOT (high 80 to low 90). As fair skinned as I am, I have to be careful with that much sun. Enjoy your rides.

I love your view. Here, it could have been ridden with a bike, but snow, cold, did I mention snow?? Mixed with rain... I much prefer your weather, cold and all, just to bike with a view like that. Ahhhhhhhh, I miss the mountains and the water..... thanks for the pictures - make sure you take your camera with you all the time!! ;-)

I love riding my bike, too, but I don't have a basket. I was thinking the other day that I need an accessory on the handlebars within easy reach, a pouch of sorts, to hold my cellphone, camera, zapper, GPS, water bottle etc. If I can't find one, I'll have to make one. You do have a lovely rural view.

Good for you! "Just for me" times are really important. And such a beautiful ride.
