A while ago on a fresh spring day I rode my bike to town to visit with a friend. I then took the pretty road home. Here are the photos for you to adore.

Biking clothes

Hey you guys!
Yesterday I rode 13+ km around my town! It was a great jaunt. Above is similar to what I wore.
My bike is a white version of the Electra 7sp Cruiser you see above. My jeans are Clockhouse from C&A in Halle, Germany whereas these ones are from City Chic. My top is similar to this one from City Chic but it’s from Rockman’s BeMe range. My birkies are the same make but in Burnt Orange. And finally my bag is Bluebird from Strandbags. Everything else is bang on!
I now am sunburnt, (silly me) and have a great strap mark across my chest. I took lots of photos and I will share with you soon. In the meantime here was the view from one of the prettier spots on my ride.
Judy-May out!

Cycling Chic

I took Angus, my bicycle on a massive 8.5km ride today. Ok it’s not that massive but for a relatively unfit, chubby woman it felt massive.

I stopped for lunch at around 1 for over an hour and I walked through town. I ran into so many friends who were  keen to jump on Angus and have a quick ride. He was very obliging. It was really lovely.

I’ll be biking around a lot more often now that I’m feeling more confident! And I’ll be pimping my ride, so to speak. I’ll need a basket in front and a rack and some fenders. It was such a leisurely thing to do.

I even rode on the ROAD! Only in dedicated bike lanes however. What a feeling?!

One thing I will say is that you have a lot better perspective on a bike than you do in  a car or even walking, especially on the road. Inclines that I had never noticed before, were huge mountains to climb over. I’ll admit to jumping off and walking occassionally, generally because my knee felt like it was about to give.

I was able to see the city from a whole new angle. The above photo doesn’t demonstrate just how striking the view was here. I could even see that the tide was out on our river. That’s how detailed it was.


And we finally made it home after a big adventure.

Here’s the route I took. Screen shot from map my ride:
