Yesterday it was raining the whole day …. Drizzling rain and a bit cold, but somehow I manage to get spring feelings. Maybe it was because I felt like the crocus in parks … wet & frozen.
I bought a new bike – my old white Danish was smoke damaged during our basement fire last June. I haven’t been on a bike since 1990 and 20 kilo lighter. Except on the Gym … but that haven’t happened for the last 5 years.
Always wanted neither a red or yellow bike. So when our local sport shop had an ad in the paper with a full equipped 28″ bike – 3 gears. In black or red. Price was nearly for free … 3500SEK7€380/£275/$417 – then there was a discount voucher in the paper for 500SEK, so I got it for 3000SEK/€359/£259/$394 with insurance and registration. A FAB bargain!! And it’s made in Sweden, which is great if I need to have a serious talk with it.
Also invested in a pair of very comfortable and posh sneakers (Novita), because of all the walking I will do in Japan soon. Made from Italian leather both inside and outside – so soft, but I don’t think my feet will ever be painless again.
But they weren’t for free … cost half of what my bike did.
They say riding a bike is like sex …. if you manage it once you will never forget how do it and how to enjoy it. *smile
So this morning I put on my new sneakers and went to the shop to collect my bike and now have I been out on my first ride on my Ferrari red … for the safety of others I walked with the bike over the the empty school yard and did my practice – it was very wobby the first 15 min, the balance isn’t what it has been.
After that it was like I never been off a bike and off I went to park to check on my swans and after that to the Castle Park.
The sun really tried to get through to me, but it was very pleasant weather and the birds are singing. The Landskrona Park Team had been busy with clearing out some trees in the parks.
Landskrona is a great town for bikes and 60% of us are on bikes, with me included now – it’s so flat and cyclist path on every street. No hills what so ever.
I don’t have a clue how my “sorry ass” and the bike will get along, it could become a problem. But I only live once, even if I got the chance twice. *smile
Look out Landskrona!!!!!! Because the town isn’t safe anymore. Can’t help myself, just now I love my bike, Spring and life !!!!
