Now that we live near a rail trail, my husband and I decided to have our bikes tuned up, including new seats. Yay.... new seats! I made a promise to myself that even if I was busy working on the new old home that I would make time to enjoy some fresh air and our new surroundings. I can easily let a day slip by if I am hyper-focused on a project and enjoying the simple pleasure of riding a bike, even if it is for only a half an hour, is one of many things I can do to relax and enjoy life.
I'm hiding the big bike chain grease spot on my calf in this picture, but I just had to show you my sneakers! I'm about ready to buy a second pair incase they get discontinued. These white Skecher Ultra sneakers are so comfortable and comfort is key for me! They also have a slight touch of bling on them by way of silver thread used on the eyelets. I have included a link that not only shows a close up, but you can also purchase a pair via this affiliate link as well. The size runs really true! I am a 6 1/2 and they fit perfectly.
My mother in-law gave me her Diamondback bike years ago, and it's finally going to get a lot of use! I have taken it out a few times in the past, including riding it on the trails in historic Concord, MA and Lexington, MA, but I have no more excuses living so close to a beautiful rail trail. The bike has even been used to ride down a long dirt mountain road in Rangeley, ME and no, not by me, I'm a big baby and like my flat horizontal surfaces.
