I Love My Bike

Well, I've got my bike back from the shop after having it's wheels fixed and I've been out two nights in a row. 

And, I'm LOVING it!!!

Last night we (Karen and I) were out for an hour - we were quite tired by the time we got home and my legs were just a wee bitty shaky!!
 I really enjoyed it though.

Tonight we were out again and only for 45 minutes and again we had a great cycle. 

Here is my bike. 
Debbie - I took your advice and got a basket for it, what a great buy that was - it is so useful. My rain jacket and camera safely stashed in there and can you see - my bike is  purple  :))
 I took this picture - that is the Marine Hotel (the one where Karen works) with Arran in the background. 

I'm hoping to get out again tomorrow - who thought I would get so much pleasure from cycling. Certainly not me

I love to bicycle, and used to do it regularly. It's such a relaxing thing to do, and a great workout.
LOVE your bike!

I love your purple bike, Ellie! Good for you getting out to ride it! You will have many fun cycling outings and be getting fit at the same time! Marvellous!
I used to enjoy cycling way back in the dim and distant, but now, only rarely as a way of getting somewhere out of walking distant (and now I have the car again even that has died down). It's an excellent form of transport and so much further to the gallon than a car (also a gallon of tea cost less than a gallon of petrol). I hope you continue to enjoy it for a long time to come.

Looks like you have plenty of beautiful countryside to enjoy long bike rides. I also have a basket on my bike, which I love!
Love your bicycle! Glad you're having fun with it.
Beautiful picture of that hotel!

Good for you! Riding bicyles, (since I had children) hurts my....how do I say it? Bum.
I am happy to hear that you got your bike back. It sounds like you are having a lot of fun with it and it is great exercise.
