In celebration of yesterdays precipitation that was finally congruent with the spring season (RAIN!!!!! And a lot of it!), my thoughts obviously turned to bicycles.
While there is still a dangerous amount of debris (and in some places snow banks) in my normal bike routes, that cannot stop the tiny bubbles of excitement are tingling through my veins when I think about the magical time ahead. You don’t need me to tell you that this has been a long, hard winter, so the thought of gliding down the street on my wheels brings a giddy smile to my face.
I thought it was time to get my bike prepped for the season. No, I have not cleaned the chain or pumped my tires, I instead did the favourite activity of all teen movies:
Many of you have heard the heart-rending tale of woe with my failed attempt to paint my bike last year (*tiny sob*), so I thought I would take a different approach to adding a little razzle-dazzle to my trusty steed for the new season.
We will see how long it lasts in the elements, but for now, wave if you see me cruising around town. I will be the one on the rad bike grinning like a fool.
Happy bike season everyone!!
PS. I am on the hunt for a wooden/wicker basket for the back. My crate is not big enough for my handbag, so message me if you have any leads on [cheap and adorable] possibilities!
Every time I see an adult on a bike, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
