I finally bought a bike today! I've been wanting to get one for a while (I haven't had a bike since middle school!), and I went shopping around at a couple places throughout this week and tried several. I wanted something cruiser-looking, but with several gears so I can shift.
It looks red in these pictures, but ti's a pretty magenta color. I can't wait to go for rides along the lakeshore on beautiful days (like today!), and it's great exercise. I have friends that say they discovered so many new areas of the city where they'd never been before when they got a bike... I hope the same hold true for me!
(oh, and don't worry, I got all the proper locks so it doesn't get stolen, and of course a helmet so I can ride safely!)
Here are some pics of my new beauty:
