A New Ride

Standard

This post is LONG overdue!  Sorry!  My free time is spent with Tyler, working out/yoga, or catching up on blogs and TV.  I am LOVING my new job, by the way.  It is challenging and energizing all at the same time.   I feel very lucky.

I received a very sweet surprise from my husband this week.  You see, our one year wedding anniversary is coming up at the end of May which is so hard to believe given everything that has happened in the last year.  We moved from Kansas City to Atlanta, Tyler started a new job,  and I started a new job.  We are very happy in our new city and have tried many new things. 

Back to the surprise…Tyler came home on Monday night with a very sweet present for our anniversary and landing my dream job.

 Check it out!!!

The bike is from ATLANTACYCLING  which is very close to our apartment.  I have been talking about wanting to get a a road bike for about 2 years.  I was shocked!  The colors of the bike are totally me which is so fun!  Tyler and I are going to head out for a ride this weekend. The weather is supposed to be good.  Riding on the road is SO different from riding inside, but we can’t wait to get out there! 

I went to the store this morning to get fitted, and it is amazing to me how much gear you need to be comfortable for rides lasting more than 30 minutes.  Biking is an expensive sport!  I did buy some shorts, a water bottle, and a PINK water bottle cage.  Sweet!

I have missed all of you!  Thank you for checking in on the blog and me.  I will do my best to post when I can because I really do love the blog community. 

Have a great weekend!  Get out there and ride your bike! 

do you prefer cycling inside or outside?

any suggestions for a beginner outdoor cyclist?
