My dad came to visit today, and I took advantage of his presence by shuttling him to the bike shop (he’s a serious cyclist). We got cleats for my bike shoes, and now I need to practice clipping in and out.
A lot of you mentioned investing in a triathlon suit for my upcoming Olympic tri. I agree it would be more comfortable than a bathing suit + bike shorts, but triathlons (like cycling) are kind of expensive, and I can’t afford to sink any more $$ into the sport yet. If I have a lot of fun and decide to stick with it, I’m sure I’ll upgrade.
Anyway, while we were at the bike store, I had a Glo Bakery bar – but my camera ate the picture. 🙂
And then the Husband, Dad, and I went to our favorite Thai place to celebrate Dad’s birthday.
Don’t we look alike?
I had 2 of these spring rolls:
And ordered the Cashew Nut Tofu:
With a side of brown rice:
I managed to finish almost all of it. 🙂
And Key Lime Pie for dessert:
A lot of you have commented that you’d like to get into cycling, but you’re not sure what bike to buy. My dad actually helped me prepare a post on buying bicycles, so keep your eyes peeled! I’ll try to finish it up and post sometime early this week.
Do you own a bike? What kind of bike is it – for leisure or a racing bike? Mountain or road? Most importantly… did you name your bike? 🙂 My bike’s name is Pink!
I do have a bike and I love it. I actually got it as a present. I am lucky to be living in Australia, because it’s an insanely active place to live and there are HEAPS of bike paths to ride along the river/ocean.
I need to get back on it. I don’t have a name yet, I’ve never been one to name things. Perhaps I’ll get that process started. I love the feeling of riding a bike, it’s like a mild feeling of flying.
