Recap & Ramblings!

Wow..the whole week went by and not too many updates!  Oh well!  Life goes on, I am here now!  I have a few exciting things to report!  I feel like a little kid...I want to introduce you all to Purple Rain!  So you are thinking who or what is Purple Rain?  It's my new bike!
Purple Rain
This bike purchase was unexpected.  Shall I tell you how I came to get it?  Okay I will!  On Saturday I had on my calendar that I would meet up with a couple of friends in Santa Monica and we were gonna attempt to rent bikes and ride on the beach!  This is something I have been wanting to do for a while, but I have not ridden a bike since I was a little kid.  I was not sure I could still ride a bike!  So here we are on Saturday at Santa Monica and I am renting out my beach cruiser, and I get on it and the rest was history!  I have fallen in love with being on a bike.  I have had this child-like giddiness that I just can't describe!  After my ride on Saturday I just had to get me a bike!

I went on Craigslist and was searching a found a few decent looking ads and pictures.  This bike that I got, was hiding all the way in Norwalk, CA!  But its so pertty!  I feel in love with it immediately, and I decided yesterday to name it Purple Rain!

On Saturday we road from the Santa Monica/venice Beach Border to the Santa Monica/Malibu Border.  Total trip of 9.66 miles.  I was impressed with my endomondo app on my phone, I was able to track the whole trip!  I think I am going to purchase the full version!   If you are so inclined here is the map & stats of the bike ride!

That's all I will do for now...I must get to work!
